Four differences between Wenger and 'hard' Jose — Mkhitaryan

Four differences between Wenger and 'hard' Jose — Mkhitaryan

"Mourinho required a lot from the players".

Henrikh Mkhitaryan provided three assists on his full Arsenal debut. A lot, he was very hard.

The midfielder revealed the reasons that encouraged him to leave Manchester United and play for Arsene Wenger, who he expects to learn a lot from.

New Arsenal signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been talking about the differences between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho.

How did Mkhitaryan get on against Spurs?

Alexandre Lacazette's poor form in front of goal continued as he missed a glorious chance to rescue a point for Arsenal in the north London derby.


Lacazette has lost his place to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the last couple of weeks.

"In the second half, at the end they were exhausted, they weren't pressing as much and we were creating a bit more space so we had chances".

If one moment summed up Mkhitaryan's performance today, it was this utterly awful cross during the first half...

"Mkhitaryan was used and abused at United but, under more of an "artistic director", the Armenia captain looks as if going to be a big hit for the Gunners".

The Armenia worldwide had fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, aiming a dig at the Portuguese on his departure by saying he was looking forward to playing "attacking football" at Arsenal.

The former Borussia Dortmund star has made a splash in his brief spell with Wenger's men, and spoke about the differences between the Frenchman and the Portuguese ahead of Arsenal's weekend derby against Tottenham. "He looks a guy who needs to be completely focused, involved in his team", Wenger said when queried about the transition Aubameyang has been through. Maybe Mkhitaryan would have been better off on the right flank? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
