Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said he was concerned about the thousands of empty seats at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday during the Gunners' 3-0 win over Watford.

The playmaker hit the half-century in the eighth minute of the Emirates Stadium encounter, with his looping free-kick headed home by Shkodran Mustafi for Arsenal's 1,000th home goal of the Premier League era.

Arsenal's final match before the two-week global break comes in the Europa League on Thursday night, as they welcome AC Milan to North London for the second leg of their last-16 tie.

'It gets us out a little bit of that negative spiral we were in, ' said the Frenchman, whose side have now won two successive games.

"Overall, we did very well".

"I always believe in the work I'm doing every day and I knew one day it was going to turn".

The win marked several landmarks for Arsenal.

They remained two games behind Eastern Conference leaders Toronto - which booked their playoff berth on Wednesday, March 7. The stunning play quickly went viral on social media and it simply gets better each time you watch it.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan then sealed victory with a low strike that crept under Orestis Karnezis in the 77th minute.

"Our job is to perform, to stick together in hard moments and to get the fans back on our side again", he said.

It was the first time the 35-year-old has kept out a spot-kick since joining Arsenal in 2015 and helped him secure a landmark 200th Premier League clean sheet. For all of the recent turbulence of the club that many attribute to the stubbornness of Wenger, to win 700 games for one club is an astounding achievement that should be praised. We need some more games now.

We now have to play Milan again on Thursday, and it would appear that Wenger is now making sure he will have his best players available to guarantee we get to the next round of the Europa League.

The match also saw Arsenal score their 1000th Premier League home goal, Mesut Ozil become the fastest player to reach 50 assists and Cech keep his 200th clean sheet in the competition.

"There's a lot of negativity".

Bellerin would give away a penalty, which Deeney dispatched, before Tom Cleverely popped up with an injury-time victor to consign the Gunners to their third away loss of the Premier League season.
