Arsenal midfielder Mkhitaryan: Quitting Man Utd needed to refresh career

Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan have played two times together for Arsenal so far, helping to thrash Everton before playing in the defeat to rivals Tottenham.

"He has great vision, he has unbelievable technique and he's the best in his position".

When asked if he was looking forward to forming a partnership with Ozil and Aubameyang, Mkhitaryan said: "Yes of course".

Former Manchester United player Mkhitaryan made an impressive start to life in North London.

They combined in scintillating fashion to sweep Everton aside in a 5-1 win on both players' home debut.


The Armenian joined the Gunners during the January transfer window as part of a swap deal that allowed Alexis Sanchez his desired move to Manchester United. The German has recently signed a new contract with Arsenal that will keep him at the club till 2021.

Alexandre Lacazette is injured and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is cup-tied but another of Arsenal's new signings, Henrikh Mkhitaryan will surely start.

He added: 'I thought it could only be in a dream that we could join another club other than Dortmund but I am very happy for that.

"Two days wasn't enough to remember all the stuff that we did together but in the game, it worked very well", he explained. I know him very well, he is one of my best friends and one of the the best team-mates I have every had.

While Arsenal fans were disappointed to lose the Chilean, they were pleased to see their club snatch up a quality player. The Gunners spent a massive €65 million on the very talented Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the January window, but can not use him in the EL tie with Ostersunds tomorrow night as he is cup-tied, having already played in Europe with Borussia this season.
