Deeney roasts Wenger and Arsenal's chestnuts but is he right?

'Well, I'm not one to tell Mr. Wenger about himself, but the reason they lost wasn't due to one penalty.

The problem, Deeney thinks, is that Arsenal don't fancy it when the going gets tough.

"I have to watch what I say, but it's [having] a bit of cojones [guts and courage], is what I'll say".

This will be the first test for the new panel, which was set up for this season to judge these sorts of cases, and I think an example has to be made of Richarlison. "We didn't go back again, we carried on looking for more from the game", said Silva who guided Olympiakos to the Greek title before moving to England.

Everton replacing Romelu Lukaku with Watford's Troy Deeney wouldn't look the most inspired signing, but Arsenal now know just how risky Deeney can be.

Former Premier League referee Graham Poll has claimed that Arsenal should not have had a penalty awarded against them in their 2-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday. However, a second half penalty from Troy Deeney restored parity.

Arsenal saw a four-match winning run across all competitions come to a disappointing end after Mertesacker's first Premier League goal in 1400 days had given them the lead in Hertfordshire.

"After that we were punished by a bad refereeing decision. You know when we got the ball we missed a chance, but we missed as well to play, we missed it completely", he said.

The 29-year-old ended a 14-game barren run, his longest in league football for six years, when slamming home a penalty with 20 minutes to go. Cleverley kept his cool to fire into the roof of the net following a few shots that ricocheted around the box and triggered panic.

Certainly not too shy to leapfrog champions Chelsea, their next opponents, into fourth place.
