Petit: Arsenal's new forward must 'improve or face summer exit'

Petit: Arsenal's new forward must 'improve or face summer exit'

January signings Aubameyang and his former Dortmund team-mate Henrikh Mkhitaryan both excelled against Everton, the Armenia global recording three assists after moving to Emirates Stadium as part of a swap deal with Manchester United for Alexis Sanchez.

But a week is a long time in the frenzied world of English football and by the final whistle at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, the Arsenal manager was all smiles as he reflected on the speed at which perceptions can change.

Aubameyang struck on his Arsenal debut, a 5-1 rout of Everton, and Wenger hit back at Watzke's comments about his new signing.

Aubameyang's link-up play with former Borussia Dortmund team-mate Henrikh Mkhitaryan was a joy to behold, and could prove vital in picking up three points against Spurs.

Mkhitaryan has started well at Arsenal and believes he has nothing to prove to anyone despite his failure at Old Trafford.

Signed by Jurgen Klopp from Shakhtar Donetsk and Saint-Etienne in the summer of 2013, the pair struck up a wonderful and instant understanding in the Bundesliga and the stats racked up by them in terms of goals and assists, is very impressive.

The match saw Mkhitaryan, who created three goals, rekindle his celebrated partnership with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The decision seemingly came much to the disappointment of Lacazette, who was.

The officials say it's "highly likely" that Syria kept a stockpile of weapons. It was followed by missile strikes by U.S. military on a Syrian air base.

"I think it could only be in a dream that we could join another club other than Dortmund but I am very happy for that", said Mkhitaryan.

Even in five-a-side he's able to score goals, so when the guys can repeat that at the top level it means they have that quality.

Lacazette must now battle Aubameyang to be Arsenal's number nine.

But recently Mkhitaryan has chose to take on that role.

"There are similarities there. He will be a bit sharper on Saturday than he was last week", Wenger said.

"He told me all was done and of course it was a big factor in coming here".
