Arsenal boss Unai Emery was pleased to come away with victory against Watford after he admitted that his suffered “in the 90 minutes”.
The Hornets were made to pay for a number of missed chances as an own goal from Craig Cathcart and a strike from Mesut Ozil saw the Gunners win 2-0.
“The team suffered in the 90 minutes as it was very competitive but they worked hard,” Emery told BBC Sport.
“I think we improved in the match and it is good for our momentum and continuing to improve. We will look at Petr Cech’s injury. He is playing well but Bernd Leno continued the performance for us and it is a good example for the squad. We need every player.
“It is clear also that we are improving in getting more competitive in the difficult moments. Our quality is on the pitch when we need it.
“We will prepare for each match like this. We want to improve and give ourselves opportunities. Hopefully is it the same next time and we continue doing our way.
