Arsene Wenger Better on Players than Jose Mourinho — Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Arsene Wenger Better on Players than Jose Mourinho — Henrikh Mkhitaryan

"If Arsenal can play to his strengths, he's that kind of player who could have four touches and score four goals".

Against Everton, Mkhitaryan combined to good effect with fellow January arrival Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, a former Borussia Dortmund team-mate, and the duo will take on Tottenham in Saturday's north London derby. But it's a bit too early to compare him to the best player ever who played here.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's blistering return to form officially lasted a grand total of one game.

In reference to Carzola's possible retirement, Wenger said; "I hope not, he's on the UEFA List". Wenger said. "His finishing is good, you don't score by coincidence for so many years".

Arsenal's Hector Bellerin confessed: "In the first half we were just waiting for things to happen, we didn't have the initiative to go forward, to keep the ball - and that's our game. We will finally see the best of him".

Wenger admitted: "When you transfer numbers from one league to another, it is not necessarily transferable, especially in the top six".


Despite Lacazette's struggles in front of goal, Wenger was happy with his brief cameo and highlighted the chances he created for his teammates rather than lingering on the miss.

The ace striker arrived for £55m on transfer deadline day and kick started his Arsenal career with a debut goal against Everton.

He also adds his time at Manchester United was a success and states the fact that he scored and won in the Europa League Final.

"When we played at Swansea, we played against 10 men in the last 25 yards and that doesn't exist anywhere in Europe. To be as prolific in the Premier League is today much more hard". "He has a positive smile and very professional attitude".

"But I would have gone for it anyway because there is no reason why I should rest any of our players".
