Arsene Wenger Better on Players than Jose Mourinho — Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Arsene Wenger understands players more than Jose Mourinho, according to new Arsenal recruit Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The duo looked set for another race to top the charts this term, with the Bayern striker's 18 giving him a five-goal advantage over Aubameyang, who sealed a €63.75million move to Arsenal on transfer deadline day.

Mkhitaryan needed no time at all to settle into his new surroundings as he came up with a hat-trick of assists on his full Gunners debut last week.

And Wenger has revealed that he has been delighted by Aubameyang's professional attitude and work rate at Arsenal following his move to the club.

"I won't mention all the details because it is not fair but yes, when I signed for Arsenal, I was in touch with him saying "so, the first step is done, now we are waiting for the second one", said the Armenian.

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

Although it was only 1-0, there was a gulf in class between the two rivals. Now there's a player who has never gone missing in a big game. To have Mkhi means I don't have one of them and, in this moment, I believe the other ones deserve [to be there instead].

I think at Manchester United he didn't get the freedom he really wanted to go and perform which he had at Dortmund.

When asked whether he now can thrive at Arsenal, Rooney replied: I think he is.

Aubameyang scored 13 goals in 16 Bundesliga games for Dortmund this season but left with the club in fourth and manager Peter Bosz sacked in December following 12 games without a win in all competitions. I've seen it last season in training a lot, he's a very talented player.

Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has insisted that he has no excuses for his failure to live up to expectations during his time with Manchester United.

Arsenal had a late chance when Alexandre Lacazette was through on goal, but the substitute pulled his shot wide. On the contrary, he says, Arsene Wenger is more understanding towards his players, and the Frenchman has a "friendlier" approach towards his players. Fortunately, for Wenger's men, with Tottenham playing their home games at Wembley this season while White Hart Lane is rebuilt, it will be the first north London derby at the national stadium since 1993.
