A goal from Tom Cleverley and a penalty from Roberto Pereyra earned a 2-2 draw for Watford after a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang brace in the first half.
Flores praised the energy of his players and is pleased to back managing in England’s top flight.
Flores told Sky Sports: “Arsenal are a very good team so to get one point against them is really good.
“We played well in the first 20- 25 minutes. I said to the players at half-time to try and win the second half and see if we can make a difference.
“I think the reaction of the players was the most important thing. It’s easy to be down when you are losing 2-0 to a team as good as Arsenal. But we never gave up and we tried to keep the energy. In the second half we played really well.”
“Have I missed the Premier League? Yeah. I miss all these kind of emotions. I love it.
“I was really happy with the performance of the players. We have one point against a very tough team. It’s good for our confidence. We are positive.”
