I had a lot of success at Man United — Mkhitaryan

Won't Blame Anyone For Manchester United Struggles – Henrikh Mkhitaryan Henrikh Mkhitaryan: Arsene Wenger Better on Players than Jose Mourinho

Although Arsenal beat Tottenham 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium in November, they haven't won an away league game against their rivals since 2014. He was arguably the worst player on the pitch during the opening 45 minutes.

Arsene Wenger is more sympathetic to players than Jose Mourinho, according to Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who characterised the Manchester United boss as being "very hard" on his team.

Nobody can deny Mkhitaryan's ability but his dedication was questioned by Mourinho after the Armenia worldwide sealed his January move to Arsenal as part of Alexis Sanchez's switch to Manchester United.

Rumours circulated that the 29-year-old was staying behind after Arsenal training to help out in the striker's drills.

"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".

West Brom boss Pardew: Sturridge no big head here
The build up to the West Brom game is again being clouded by analysis of Antonio Conte's future at the club. But I understand that we have to live with this pressure, and it's OK for me and my players".

Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan formed a lethal partnership in three years together at Borussia Dortmund before the Armenian left for an unhappy 18-month spell at Manchester United. That victory was Wenger's first in the Premier League against Pochettino's Spurs at the seventh attempt while his overall record reads just two wins from eight matches including a Mathieu Flamini-inspired EFL Cup win at White Hart Lane in 2015.

Aubameyang is very different from the poacher Alexandre Lacazette and now-departed target man Olivier Giroud but his pace in behind has reminded Wenger of another Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry.

"He is Thierry Henry with his quality of runs".

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's blistering return to form officially lasted a grand total of one game. But it's a good example to follow. His finishing is good.

While many Gunners fans thanked their lucky stars the ex-Lyon star is no longer their No1 option, since the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - who was also anonymous on Saturday - one Gooner went one step further.
