Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger drops huge Henrikh Mkhitaryan revelation

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger drops huge Henrikh Mkhitaryan revelation

The £56m record signing started alongside ex-Dortmund teammate Henrik Mkhitaryan and the two players enjoyed a fine afternoon in north London.

Starting ahead of Alexandre Lacazette for his Arsenal debut, there were high expectations for Aubameyang going into the game against Everton. "Hopefully, we can replicate what we did today against Spurs on Saturday", he added.

"The players are showing so much inconsistency that I face an uphill battle trying to get them to play at their best week in, week out".

Assists Henrikh Mkhitaryan delivered on his full Arsenal debut. But this chaotic contest also highlighted why neither will be challenging Manchester City for the Premier League title.

"The manager was not happy - but none of us are", the defender told Sky Sports News.

On Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan he said "Overall, the two players integrated well into our game and they looked as if they had played for us forever, They have similar qualities to what our game is about".

"Whoever they're playing, home or away, big teams, smaller teams, they (an excellent side) manage to get good results".

Can they convince Ramsey to sign a new contract this summer and avoid a repeat of the countdown pressure exerted by Ozil and Sanchez?

Wenger was not tempering expectations. The second goal came from a corner after Aubameyang had his first shot on target which was parried behind by the keeper. His pass to Aaron Ramsey to finish off his hat-trick was of top quality. He became the first Gunner to provide three or more assists in a league game since Santi Cazorla made four against Wigan in May 2013.

Aubameyang also joined in the fun before the end of the half as Iwobi found Mkhitaryan, who turned and played the ideal nudged pass into the Gabon International's run, who dinked it over the keeper in his trademark fashion. "It's unacceptable", said the former England manager. Mkhitaryan was the star of the show.

"I think everybody in the stadium besides the Blues will be hoping that partnership connects like it did at Dortmund", he said.

"You can see that he's got electric pace and an eye for goal as well". It was a really clever finish for his goal.

Arsenal are next in action against Tottenham, who they play at Wembley next Saturday.
