Watford won't be distracted by the FA Cup Final, insists Gracia

'He wants to do something important for the supporters and I want to do something important with for him in his last matches here.' Ramsey has been among the goals for Arsenal recently - he scored against Napoli in the Europa League and was also on target against Newcastle in the Premier League.

The Watford striker's protests fell on unsympathetic ears and his side were forced to play the final 80 minutes down a man, though they were not without chances in a surprisingly open match. When you are black like me it is really painful, I think, because we are in 2019 and obviously it is not good for football in England.

"I didn't listen to him", Emery told a news conference after Arsenal moved up to fourth in the Premier League table.

"One day, I also met with David Silva in Valencia a year ago and he said to me: 'coach, if you can, come to England, it is the best football and the best atmosphere for you also".

Gracia feels Deeney's challenge did not deserve a straight dismissal which means the club captain will miss games against Huddersfield, Southampton and Wolves.

Emery has never lost to Gracia as a coach and got the better of his friend earlier this season when Arsenal won 2-0 against the Hornets at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal travelled to Watford on Monday night, looking to reclaim a top-four place as the season enters its climax.

Gracia, who gave his players three days off following that remarkable comeback win, said helping the players as best he can is all he can do.

"They are a very organised team, with a big capacity offensively because they create a good movement and a good idea, a good style to take that".
