Arsene Wenger blasts Troy Deeney for comments about Arsenal

Deeney spoke with brutal honesty about Arsenal following Watford's home victory

The north London side suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of Watford last weekend, which was their third already in the league this season.

And, speaking after the game, Hornets skipper Troy Deeney blasted the Gunners and club captain Per Mertesacker in particular. Whenever I play against Arsenal, I'll go up and think 'let me whack the first one and see who wants it'.

'I came on today, I jumped up with [Per] Mertesacker, didn't even have to jump actually, nod it down, the crowd gets up, and they all just backed off'.

"Sometimes it's nice to get off at 12 o'clock, but it's about 4am now he's staggering around absolutely blathered at this party and he's just waiting for someone to eject him which will only be matter of time, I think". That's my strength - if you're going to let me do my strength against you, you're going to have a tough afternoon.

But Wenger has now hit back at the striker, saying Arsenal's character can not be questioned.

'You can't question our character.

Kevin De Bruyne Clashes With David Silva At Half-Time On Tuesday Night
Marek Hamsik had the best of a number of Napoli chances but John Stones managed to block him. The questions about De Bruyne's game justifiably come on the other end of the pitch.

"Everyone is entitled to talk", he said.

The Brazilian attacker has enjoyed an impressive start to life at Vicarage Road, scoring three times in his first seven appearances for the Hornets, who now find themselves in fourth place in the Premier League, having won four and drawn three of their opening eight matches. In the last seven games we had six wins and one draw.

While on Stand podcast, the 61-year-old said: "I've watched Arsenal a lot this season and they were on a good run going up to Watford, but I still wasn't confident because we were playing teams that we really didn't have to do much to beat".

"Comments are part of the modern game".

Wenger admitted Deeney's comments hit a nerve but is confident his players have the character to bounce back from the defeat at Vicarage Road.
