Troy Deeney says Arsenal lost to Watford because they lack "cojones"

Watford 2-1 Arsenal – All The Goals And Best Bits Posted by Daniel Jenkins

Per Mertesacker headed Arsene Wenger's side into a 39th-minute lead from a corner but Troy Deeney equalised from the penalty spot in the 71st minute after Hector Bellerin had bundled over Richarlison.

"I have seen the penalty now and I respect the decision of the referee", Silva said.

Arsenal, who had chances to put the game to bed as neither Alex Iwobi or Mesut Ozil could beat Heurelho Gomes, were hit with a late sucker punch when the ball fell kindly to Tom Cleverly in the box and he slotted home to snatch all three points.

'I've heard Wenger's already blaming [the penalty decision] as the reason why they lost, ' Deeney said.

And Deeney had plenty to say to Arsenal about the manner of their defeat.

Quite a few Twitter users noticed the company seems to have an exceptionally arbitrary and unclear policy on suspending accounts. The tweet has since been deleted and McGowan's account unlocked .

'Well, I'm not one to tell Mr. Wenger about himself, but the reason they lost wasn't due to one penalty.

"I have to watch what I say, but it's [having] a bit of cojones [guts and courage], is what I'll say". I came on today and jumped up with Mertesacker - I didn't even have to jump, actually - I nodded it down, the crowd gets up, 'yeah we've got somebody who can win it, ' and they all just backed off.

"I look at it and I see a soft club from the very top of the club, where I think big brutal decisions have to be made - and that doesn't happen. That's my strength, so if you're going to let me do that against you, you're in for a tough afternoon".

From then on in Arsenal maintained some semblance of control but it was always going to be a nervy lead to try and hold onto.

He added: "I just think personally there's an element of that being an equaliser for me".
