Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan believes his new teammate Mesut Ozil is unrivalled in his position due to his excellent vision and technical ability.

The Armenia worldwide completed a move to the north London side from Manchester United in a swap deal that saw Alexis Sanchez make the switch to Old Trafford in January.

The German is still one of the best playmakers in the Premier League and will continue to be for a while longer at Arsenal.

Both Mkhitaryan and Ozil left Arsenal fans disappointed in the Gunners' 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, creating just two chances between them with the pair managed well by defenders.

Arsenal star Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been speaking about who he thinks the best number 10 in the world is, and it's someone he has played with.

"It's only happiness and joy to play next to him because he understands very well the football game".

Graft cases: Nawaz, Maryam and Safdar appear before NAB court
On Tuesday, the accountability court expressed displeasure over the NAB's delay in the filing of supplementary references. The Court also handed over 3 volumes of Al-Azizia reference and 6 volumes of Flagship reference to Nawaz Sharif.

The Gunners haven't won the Premier League title since 2003-04 when Wenger had players such as Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira at their peak.

Ozil recently ended transfer speculation linking him with United by signing a new three-and-a-half year contract extension worth up to £350,000-a-week.

As well as seeing him link-up with Ozil, Mkhitaryan's move to the Emirates has allowed him to be reunited with former Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who he ranks among his closest pals.

Two days wasn't enough to remember all the stuff that we did together but in the game it worked very well. What can I say?

"Because I was 29 years old, I wanted to play more, because I know that in a few years time I'll be able to end my football career, and it's very important for me to make my name bigger. I love playing with him".
