Arsenal have responded to their recent run of four consecutive defeats by winning at AC Milan in the UEFA Europa League and beating Watford in the Premier League, although attendance has still suffered.
Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is delighted to end a frustrating wait for his 200th Premier League clean sheet, the 35-year-old said after yesterday's 3-0 Premier League victory over Watford.
Wenger's men are sixth in the standings and remain 12 points off rivals Tottenham Hotspur in fourth with eight matches remaining this term.
As he will play no part in the second leg of a Europa League last-16 encounter with AC Milan on Thursday, and with Arsenal out of the FA Cup and the next global break approaching, Aubameyang will have to wait until April 1 for his next outing against Stoke.
However, Watford were awarded a penalty two minutes later when Pereyra was brought down.
Following the match, Arsenal took to Twitter to relay that the team accomplished three premier league milestones, subsequently adding more feathers to the players' and teams' cap. I remember very well every time he refused the biggest clubs to stay at Arsenal.
Google Duo now lets you leave video messages
Now, a new video messages support that has made its way to the Duo must be a long yearned add-on for majority of the Duo users. Google says the rollout is starting today and the feature should be live everywhere "over the next several days".
But the drab atmosphere at Sunday's game gave it an "end of an era" feel that will persist until Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke and chief executive Ivan Gazidis conduct the end-of-season review that will decide Wenger's fate.
The under-fire manager's first victory came against Blackburn Rovers way back in 1996, when Ian Wright scored twice in a 2-0 win at Ewood Park.
Watford had a chance to score a goal from the penalty spot in the 63rd minute after Maitland Niles fouled Roberto Pereyara in the box but captain Troy Deeney's penalty was saved by Petr Cech.
"Overall it gets us out of that negative spirit that we were in", he said. "Fantastic motivation, fantastic desire and remarkable intelligence". That kept us out of trouble.
"At 2-0 they had a penalty and if they had come back to 2-1 it is a fact that we have a bit of fatigue and we could have been in trouble but we took advantage of that miss". I didn't play a lot in January so it was hard to find the rhythm.
