Starting in his first game for the Gunners against Everton last weekend, Aubameyang capped off a good performance by scoring Arsenal's fourth in a 5-1 win. Indeed, Aubameyang has revealed his decision to join Arsenal was influenced heavily by Mkhitaryan joining the club.

"Of course sometimes you need some refreshing", Mkhitaryan told ESPN Brasil.

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

Tottenham comes into this game one place and four points better off than their London rivals, in fifth on the Premier League standings.

After an initial struggle, Mkhitaryan became a key player last season at Old Trafford and even scored in the triumphant Europa League final in Amsterdam a year ago. I think it's similar characteristics and quality.

Harry Kane's header won this derby, but, in truth, he could scored three of four goals and Spurs might have won by five or six.

A spokesperson for the West Midlands Police also confirmed that 51 year old man has been arrested in connection with the murder. The announcement comes after the young girl Jasmine Forrester, sadly passed away in hospital in Wolverhampton this morning.

Not only was Arsenal's malaise a cause for concern, but there were also doubts over Wenger's moves for former Dortmund teammates Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan.

"It's down to Lacazette to say "I'm here to fight - I think you've got to play me and Aubameyang or I'm going to be in there somehow".

'A lot, he was very hard. Spurs, unbeaten at their temporary home in the league since a 2-1 reverse to Chelsea in August, have more reason to fear Arsenal and their new record signing than any other team in the division.

After eight goals in his first 15 appearances for the Gunners, Lacazette has managed just one the last 13.

Now, under the guidance of Wenger at Arsenal, Mkhitaryan has already produced three assists and says the Frenchman understands him better.
