Henrikh Mkhitaryan keen to forget about his time at Manchester United

Aubameyang's pace and movement tormented the Everton defence as he netted with a composed first-half finish, while Mkhitaryan's range of passing provided three assists as he linked up with fellow playmaker Mesut Ozil to devastating effect.

Wenger had said, "You do not have to understand too much, you know, what you want is that everybody focuses to win the game".

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. Who will win the North London Derby on Saturday afternoon?

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

Dredging up those comments will only further boost Aubameyang's standing with the Arsenal fanbase who have taken to him immediately following his debut goal and if he adds to his already excellent record against Spurs with a victor at Wembley, his popularity will soar even higher.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger likened Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Thierry Henry and hopes the forward can follow in the footsteps of the club great.

He has four top-five finishes in eight starts this season, including a runner-up at the Sanderson Farms Championship. Reavie missed the green left and couldn't get an 11-footer to fall.

Lacazette was relegated to the substitutes bench as a result, and Gunners legend Petit, who won the Premier League title under Wenger in 1998, believes Aubameyang's signing is a key indicator of what his former manager's thoughts on Lacazette now are.

"If you play football, even in five-a-side, it is hard to score goals so when the guys can repeat that at the top level they have that quality".

Aubameyang's impact was even more impressive given he had only two 45-minute training sessions and was battling an illness ahead of his debut.

"There are similarities there".

"He looks to be a happy boy", Wenger said.

It's a bit early for me to tell you more about him - it's only one week.
