Mkhitaryan really struggled, there's no denying it, and Arsenal fans will have expected more after he set up three goals against Everton last week.

The Gunners completed the signing of the Gabon worldwide from Borussia Dortmund on transfer deadline day, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £60 million, and he made an instant impact for his new club, scoring on his debut during his side's 5-1 win over Everton on Saturday.

Mkhitaryan looked a completely different player from the man who tore Everton to shreds seven days ago.

Wenger said on Thursday that Lacazette does not understand' the club's decision to sign Aubameyang during the January transfer window.

"Obviously, we're sad to lose him, but I'm excited to see what he does".

"What can I say?" Since he's from Guadeloupe, I've been watching him a long time.

Aubameyang admits the prospect of a reunion with his former Borussia Dortmund teammate played a key part in his decision to sign for Arsene Wenger's side.

Arsene Wenger needs his newly-formed front line, including Mesut Ozil, to continue to shine if Arsenal are to maintain hopes of a top-four finish when they face local rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby on Saturday.

'We won three trophies in a year and a half, it's not every club that does that. The win takes them to within five points off a top-four spot, with a game against Tottenham scheduled for later today.

Coming just days after Alexis Sanchez finally got his wish to leave Arsenal in a blockbuster move to Manchester United, Wenger was once again under fire from angry fans frustrated by the club's failure to win the Premier League since 2004.

"It's down to Lacazatte to say "I'm here to fight, play me or Aubameyang - I'm worth my weight in gold", the former centre-back said. I am starting a new chapter in my life, in my football career and I am very happy to be here.

"Of course Wembley is a pitch that is quality, a stadium with a big crowd and it is always a special day in your mind so overall, yes". I don't have anything to prove to anyone.
