Petr Cech vs Troy Deeney
Something incredible happened for Arsenal goalie Petr Cech on Sunday in the Premier League.
Arsenal were 2-up against Watford when the visitors won a second half penalty.
The ref immediately pointed to the sport after Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles took out Roberto Pereyra in the Watford box.
It was a stupid challenge and Arsenal had few complaints about the spot-kick.
Watford striker Troy Deeney stepped up to take the penalty.
But Deeney’s effort was poor, he placed it to Cech’s left hand side, but the Arsenal keeper guess correctly and saved.
Watford’s Deeney trolled for his ‘conjones’ comment
As soon as Deeney missed his penalty, social media turned on the Watford striker.
Earlier in the campaign, during a TV interview on BT Sports, Deeney called out arsenal for lacking “conjones”.
As soon as Deeney failed to hold his nerve it was a case of tables turning for the Watford veteran.

Cech has been waiting for Troy Deeney so he can make his first Arsenal penalty save. It was a long play, but it's paid off today. Grabbing his testicles in celebration and shouting 'COJONES' was unnecessary though.

Petr Cech’s 200th Premier League clean sheet
The penalty save was also huge for Petr Cech.
It was the firs time Petr Cech has saved a penalty since joining Arsenal. He’s previously faced 16 spot-kicks.
Moreover, after almost three months of sitting on 199 Premier League clean sheets, Cech has finally joined the 200 club.
That donkey is finally off his back.
Arsenal 3 – Watford 0
Arsenal broke the deadlock in the eight minute. Mesut Ozil swung a free-kick from the left hand into the Watford box, and Shkodran Mustafi converted with a booming header.
Arsenal doubled their lead through their former Borussia Dortmund duo. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his third Arsenal goal from an assist from Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Arsenal wrapped up the win with a third from Mkhitaryan, after he scored on Thursday night against AC Milan.
