Wenger understands players better than Mourinho — Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Jose Mourinho Rafa Benitez

Henrikh Mkhitaryan insists he has nothing to prove after leaving Manchester United to join up with best friend Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Arsenal.

Mkhitaryan struggled during Arsenal's 1-0 loss to Tottenham, and made no impact on the match, like all of his teammates.

Brady said on beIN Sports: "Harry Kane, he got a great goal, but his effort compared to our three star players was a distance apart".

Alexandre Lacazette is under "massive pressure" at Arsenal and could be sold in the summer, says Emmanuel Petit.

There were suggestions that Mkhitaryan fell out with Mourinho at United after the Portuguese heavily criticised a performance in November.

The Armenian played poorly. He lost the ball, was poor in possession and ballooned a cross in the first-half.

After recording three assists against Everton last time out in the Premier League, Gunners fans were looking forward to what the former Manchester United man could do at Wembley.

However, criticism of the player from some United fans was peculiar.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has aimed a dig at Jose Mourinho, saying his new manager Arsene Wenger is "friendlier" and "understands" the players more. The win takes them to within five points off a top-four spot, with a game against Tottenham scheduled for later today.

But what about Mkhitaryan, eh?

When his moment finally came he failed to deliver, spurning two clear chances to equalise in stoppage-time as his goals tally remained at one from his last 13 games in all competitions.

Many have described Mkhitaryan's short stint at United as failed. "He looks a guy who needs to be completely focused, involved in his team", Wenger said when queried about the transition Aubameyang has been through.
