"The first half was not easy but our defensive moments were good".

Unai Emery, the Arsenal head coach, intends to keep playing Aaron Ramsey despite a club decision to withdraw a contract offer that will nearly certainly lead to the midfielder's departure next year.

Unai Emery believes his Arsenal side showed the required efficiency in front of goal after struggling for large parts of the game in their 2-0 win over Watford on Saturday.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is likely to leave the club next summer after the Gunners withdrew the offer of a new deal.

Emery expressed confidence in the former Bayer Leverkusen gloveman with a first-team opportunity beckoning. "But today, one more time, I'm very proud of my players".

Leno had to come on for his Premier League debut moments before half-time after Cech limped off.

Watford head coach Javi Gracia was less appreciate of Leno's display as it cost the visitors what could have been three points, instead leaving them with a third defeat in four competitive outings.

"There are still many matches, many days and I hope many years for continuing to improve here with my experience and my knowledge".

"I want the best preparation for him and his mentality and his quality. We created more chances, had more shots on target, but we lost". "I just want to give him and the players the most stability so that they can be focused only on the games". We competed well, we had many chances and their goalkeeper made some awesome saves.
