Mkhitaryan To Arsenal Fans: Best Of Partnership With Aubameyang Yet To Come

After linking up extremely well together in the comprehensive 5 – 1 win over Everton at the start of the month, Arsenal fans can expect to see a lot more from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang over the coming seasons.

While Aaron Ramsey would usually grab the headlines after his hat-trick against the Toffees, the back page was actually dominated by Aubameyang’s debut strike and Mkhitaryan’s hat-trick of assists.

The pair teamed up extremely well together during their time at Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal fans certainly got a glimpse of the future during the victory.

Although the pair couldn’t repeat the feat in the north London derby at the weekend, Mkhitaryan has hinted that more is to come as both get used to playing alongside one another again after their spell together in the Bundesliga.

“We did not have too much time to train together [before the Everton game],” Mkhitaryan told Arsenal Player.

“He came a bit late, like two games before the game and he had been training only twice.

“Two days wasn’t enough to remember all the stuff that we did together but in the game it worked very well.

“I thought it could only be in a dream that we could join another club other than Dortmund but I am very happy for that. I know him very well, he is one of my best friends and one of the the best team-mates I have every had.

“I am very happy to have him here and I think all the fans are happy to see him in an Arsenal shirt. What can I say? I love playing with him. I can understand him from one step, and hopefully that for the next games we’re going to achieve more.”
