Troy Deeney: Some Arsenal fans waste no time in reminding Watford captain of ‘cojones’ comments following red card for elbowing Lucas Torreira

Some Arsenal fans were quick to remind Troy Deeney about comments he made more than a year ago following his red card on Monday.

Watford captain Deeney was sent off for elbowing Lucas Torreira in the 11th minute at Vicarage Road less than a minute after his side went 1-0 down.

The Hornets beat Arsenal 2-1 last season thanks to a late Tom Cleverley goal.

After the game Deeney appeared on BT Sport and said the Gunners lacked “cojones”.

Deeney pleads his case to referee Craig Pawson

“I’m not going to be one to tell Mr (Arsene) Wenger about himself, but there’s a reason that they lost and it wasn’t because of one penalty,” Deeney said.

“I have to watch what I say, but it’s (having) a bit of cojones, is what I’ll say. Whenever I play against Arsenal, I’ll go up and think ‘let me whack the first one and see who wants it.”
