Henrikh Mkhitaryan: Won't Blame Anyone For Manchester United Struggles

The Gunners signed the Armenia global in a swap deal that saw Alexis Sanchez complete a switch to Old Trafford.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has joined Arsenal for around £59m and Arsenal fans are getting very excited about their supposed saviour.

The midfielder made his debut for Arsenal in a 3-1 defeat against Swansea City, but soon had another game to show his skills, as he made three assists in the 5-1 victory over Everton.

Asked if he preferred the game to be at Wembley, Wenger said: "Yes, because we have a positive history there". "We won three trophies in a year and a half, it's not every club that does that".

After a period of squad division, togetherness is key at Arsenal - if the Arsenal boss is to prevent a fresh wave of "Wenger Out" banners.

But what have Arsenal fans been saying about the Armenia international's performance?

He called me a few times. "Aubameyang's signing tells me it might already be too late", The Sun quotes Petit as saying.

"That makes me happy, but it's nothing more than a bonus for me to be the second-best striker in the Bundesliga right now". 'We read the other day an article and we got emotional.

On his Facebook page, he posted pictures of his cats, children and grandchildren and of himself dressed as Santa Claus. They have also erected a large tent in the backyard. "We are dealing with some agencies overseas", said Idsinga.

However, how the two players ended up at Arsenal is polarised.

While in Germany, Mkhitaryan struck up an understanding - both on and off the pitch - with Dortmund team-mate Aubameyang.

Although he had a rough time in the north-west, Mkhitaryan wants to put the past behind him and find the sort of form that left United and Arsenal battling for his signature when he left Borussia Dortmund.

Many have described Mkhitaryan's short stint at United as failed. But he was dropped after the 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in November past year - which proved to be his penultimate league start at the club. "I wish. Santi was an exceptional football player". It means they have that quality. And why has his arrival finally sparked optimism at the Emirates - even before the Everton result?

But this is where the optimism starts - eventually, and I say this putting a lot of faith in my Gunners - they are going to start finding some space for Aubameyang in behind defenses and they are going to see how easy it is and, since apparently it's this hard to figure things out, seeing it is believing it.

"I won't mention all the details because it is not fair but yes, when I signed for Arsenal, I was in touch with him saying "so, the first step is done, now we are waiting for the second one", said the Armenian. So I really do think he will kick on. "That's what top Premier League is about". In contrast, United rank bottom for number of passes out of the big-six clubs.

Jack Wilshere also returns to the starting line-up with Alex Iwobi dropping to the bench.
