Petr Cech delighted to end 'frustrating' wait for landmark clean sheet

Petr Cech did just that on Sunday in Arsenal's victory over Watford as he set a Premier League record for keeping a clean sheet.

Football's Petr Čech reached a major milestone on Sunday becoming the first goalkeeper in Premier League history to keep 200 clean sheets.

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang feels that his confidence has been boosted by his strike against Watford in the Premier League yesterday, as reported by BBC Sport. But I wanted absolutely to win this game and it was hard, but overall, it gets us a little bit out of that negative spiral that we were in. The Premier League's joint top scorer - tied with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah with 24 goals this season - is expected to lead the attack for England at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation. He played multiple times a week for Dortmund, but at Arsenal, because he is cup-tied for Europa League games, his outings have been more sporadic.

Describing the situation as frustrating, the former Borussia Dortmund player was quoted as saying by ITV: "I am really frustrated because the rules are a bit".

"I can't play every three days", Aubameyang said. Finishing fifth in league last season was a new low for Wenger, but his team may be lucky to hold on to even sixth place this year, considering the club's current form.

Four of Mustafi's five Premier League goals have been assisted by Mesut Ozil (two from corners, two from free-kicks) - all four of the Ozil-assisted goals have been at the Emirates.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, speaking to BBC Sport: "It was a hard game like you get in the Premier League".

"The spirit kept us out of trouble".

Both players joined the Gunners in January and despite playing minimal games together they have gelled.

"It was not as easy as the score says because we scored those goals in the right moments".

Bellerin missed out on Saturday's win through injury, having also been absent for last Thursday's Europa League win over AC Milan with knee ligament damage.

It was quite entertaining in parts, but it was largely a play without a plot.
