Watford star Troy Deeney makes bold claim about Newcastle stadium

Watford star Troy Deeney makes bold claim about Newcastle stadium

But Wenger begged to differ, telling journalists at a press conference yesterday to preview today's Europa League clash against Red Star Belgrade that Deeney's comments "aren't justified".

As much as he disagreed with the sentiment, Wenger also said Deeney was entitled to voice his opinion. "My opinion will stay between me and him".

"As a player if your attitude is questioned, it's terrible", Wilshere said ahead of the game in Serbia, as quoted on Arsenal's official site.

And Wilshere made sure to let Deeney know about the victory in a post on Instagram, saying, "I told you we have some".

Speaking before the Gunners take on Everton this weekend, Mertesacker reflected on the disastrous defeat against Watford, when his side were 1-0 up but lost 2-1 late on after an terrible second-half display.

"They [Watford] were coming for us and were having a real go at us".

"He just felt "look, I'm just going to give it to them because I think they've got a soft centre"".

When we look back at the game we look back at ourselves and what we did wrong. We will see in the next match and we will see what happens.

"It's interesting, because the body language of one or two players has been hard to say the least". The 25-year-old said there will be a few who will be disappointed at Deeney's comments, but admitted that it is part of the modern game, where they are judged on each performance.

"I love my players and I trust their strength of character to respond quickly".
