Wenger also feels Cech has to be considered one of the best Premier League goalkeepers ever.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles conceded a penalty with a foul on Pereyra, but when Deeney stepped up to take the spot-kick, Cech made a fine save that preserved his 200th clean sheet in the Premier League.

The German's free-kick teed up Shkodran Mustafi to head the Gunners in front, as Arsene Wenger chased his 700th win as Arsenal boss. On top of that he saved a penalty today. It's quite fortunate that it's against Deeney! In one week he goes from hell to heaven, and that's how life can be.

Mkhitaryan bagged his second goal in successive matches with a low strike that crept under Karnezis in the 77th minute.

Wenger also acknowledged there had been "a lot of negativity" around in the build-up to Thursday's Europa League win at AC Milan that ended Arsenal's losing run.

"We have had a disappointing period and our supporters suffered like we suffered".

"The spirit kept us out of trouble". In the end it was a convincing win. "The crowd gets up - "Yeah, we've got somebody who can win it" - and they all just backed off". The German global headed Arsenal in front within 10 minutes and looked strong in one on one duels until he came off injured with a groin problem in the second half.
