Arsenal will now face Qarabag in the Europa League, before traveling to Craven Cottage to face Fulham.
Bernd Leno made his debut in the Premier League for Arsenal as a result of injury to the former Czech international and is expected to take his place until Cech recovers.
Watford gave a tough fight to Arsenal, and with the match still goalless after over 90 minutes, an Arsenal counter-attack led to own goal from Watford. Minutes later, Arsenal doubled their lead from a fine cross from Alexandre Lacazette, which was tapped in by Mesut Ozil.
