Wenger paid tribute to the 35-year-old and said: "It has highlighted what Petr Cech has done in his career, 200 clean sheets is remarkable and he has saved a penalty on top of that".

The Gunners are favourite to cruise through into the last eight of the Europa League after a comfortable 2-0 win at the San Siro in the first leg.

Fuelled by that jibe, Arsenal took the lead in the eighth minute.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says his Uefa-enforced absence from the Europa League has hampered his attempts to find an early rhythm at Arsenal.

With the second leg against Milan looming on Thursday, Wenger rested Aaron Ramsey and Laurent Koscielny and left Jack Wilshere on the bench, and his gamble paid off.

The Czech icon also saved his first penalty in 16 attempts as an Arsenal player, keeping out Troy Deeney's spot kick.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles: The Gunners graduate played at right-back for the first time this campaign, and he managed to frustrate Richarlison throughout the game. "I think a coin did hit David Sullivan, his glasses", he told BBC 5 Live. "It's quite fortunate that it's against Deeney", he said.

Aubameyang was one of the established stars who started for Arsenal and the Gabon striker should have opened the scoring when he raced onto Mesut Ozil's pass and shot straight at Watford goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis.

Arsenal was coming off a three match losing spree in the premier league.

West Ham captain Mark Noble grappled one fan to the floor and teammate James Collins marched two others away. But overall the spirit and desire was good.

Arsène Wenger, the Arsenal manager, has criticised the Uefa rule and he believes it will be scrapped, largely because of the huge sums of money involved in mid-season transfers.

Elsewhere on Saturday, it was: Manchester United 2, Liverpool 1; Leicester 4, West Brom 1; Chelsea 2, Crystal Palace 1; Everton 2, Brighton 0; Newcastle 3, Southampton 0; Swansea 0, . We focus on performances and when the pressure is on like this you have to show that strong organisation and unite, not divide.

Vieira, who played for Arsenal between 1996 and 2005, has prior coaching experience with Major League Soccer side New York City but didn't want to discuss replacing Wenger.
