Arsenal new boy Mkhitaryan names his 'best ever' team-mate

Arsenal boss says not surprised by Mkhitaryan's professionalism

Arsene Wenger has admitted that Alexandre Lacazette's confidence may have been affected by the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - but backed him to get through it.

Aubameyang opened his goal account for the Gunners in that fixture, following a club-record £55 million move from Borussia Dortmund, while Mkhitaryan provided three assists.

"I think Arsenal would say: "we'd have you next season". And it's too early to compare them to each other, I still need time to work with Arsene Wenger. Now there's a player who has never gone missing in a big game. "But it's a good example to follow", he added when asked about comparisons between Aubameyang and Henry.

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.

The France global had the chance to salvage at least a point for his side in the North London Derby against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, but he squandered two good opportunities from the bench. He came in on Tuesday and we still had to keep him out of training because he had still not recovered physically from his sickness.

I can understand him from step one and hopefully for the next games we are going to achieve more . In reference to Carzola's possible retirement, Wenger said; "I hope not, he's on the UEFA List".

Frank Reich reportedly has five-year deal to become Colts coach
Eagles coach Doug Pederson calls the plays but Reich was instrumental in orchestrating the offense too. He helped develop Carson Wentz into a star and turn Nick Foles into a quality starting quarterback.

And boss Wenger said: "It is an ambitious statement but a good one".

"His target is to have an impact in the Premier League because he knows that, today, to be acknowledged as a top class striker, you have to do it in the Premier League". So I really do think he will kick on.

Henry is the club's greatest ever goalscorer and Aubameyang will be desperate to make himself an instant hero in the North London derby. His finishing is good. Even in five-a-side he's able to score goals, so when they guys can repeat that at the top level. In fact, in four meetings against Spurs, Aubameyang has only failed to score once - in Dortmund's 3-1 defeat at Wembley in September - scoring four goals in as many appearances against them over the past couple of seasons.

"We won the Europa League final, I scored a goal".
