Goalkeeper Petr Cech could miss Arsenal's games against FK Qarabag and Fulham after injuring a leg during Saturday's 2-0 win over Watford.

The 36-year-old will be assessed by Arsenal's medical team on Sunday.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery told reporters that his players had been cautious in the first half as Watford pressed forward but that they picked up the pace after the break.

"Three weeks ago he was out of the team for two weeks with an injury".

- Arsenal has won five consecutive Premier League games for the first time since August 2017 (a run of six).

Bernd Leno stepped in for his Premier League debut and did not waste the opportunity, making fine saves from Troy Deeney and Roberto Pereyra in the late 2-0 victory.

Sarri: Fabregas is a great option for Chelsea
But I feel for them when they don't score goals, especially Alvaro as I have a good relationship with him and I know that he suffers as he cares a lot.


Outside of ensuring that the team's philosophy is executed, Emery's tactics has certainly rubbed off on the players as there have been a number of Gunners who have improved drastically.

"I think he was content to wait for this moment and now it is arriving. This performance is the best for him and for us".

"We're physically fit and we know that we can go and get the result". The ball was near our box a lot.

"In the first half we were a little nervous. I think each player is thinking well, but also we need more".

And Danny [Welbeck] and Alex Iwobi helped us with their pushing moments and quality. "We need to continue being calm, and giving them calm".

Arsenal want to sell Ramsey in January, as they will be unable to collect a transfer fee once his contract expires in June.

Navy ship built at Bath Iron Works almost struck by Chinese warship
Chinese ships often shadow USA vessels during freedom of navigation operations but those interactions are usually considered safe. The Chinese defence ministry says it opposes the U.S. warship's entry into the waters "around China's islands and reefs".


Sport Mediaset claim Napoli star Zielinski is the player Emery wants to bring in to take over the midfield mantle from Ramsey.

After an impressive start to the season - which saw it win its opening four games - Watford has now gone three without a win and is in danger of slipping down the Premier League table.

Emery was up against a former team-mate in Gracia, the pair played together at Real Sociedad, and it was the Arsenal boss who would have the upper hand eventually.

"What can I say?" he lamented. I have a friendship with him. "And if you don't score, you can lose".

"It's frustrating. In the last few games we feel we deserved more".
