Aubameyang-Mkhitaryan partnership earns comparison to icons from Arsenal's Invincibles

Spain have 31 players in the Premier League including Manchester United No 1 David de Gea

Against Everton, Mkhitaryan combined to good effect with fellow January arrival Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, a former Borussia Dortmund team-mate, and the duo will take on Tottenham in Saturday's north London derby.

While he was cautious about comparing Aubameyang to Henry, Wenger said the Gabon global had similar traits.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Saturday's [10 February] north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur, Wenger was asked about Aubameyang's reaction to being dropped against Everton, explaining he had planned on bringing the Frenchman on before an injury to Petr Cech changed those plans.

"He is Thierry Henry with his quality of runs". I have known him very well, he is one of my best friends and the best teammate I have ever had.

The Armenian begun the 2017/18 campaign as one of Man United's best attacking players, claiming five assists in his first three games, but his form rapidly dwindled as time went on.

Pulisic is part of the Dortmund squad that was warned by CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke not to follow Aubameyang's example in "withholding" performances in order to force a move. His finish was brilliant.

"He said he needed to win the league and he got Robin van Persie to score him the goals to get above Manchester City".

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.

Mkhitaryan made 63 appearances across all competitions for United, scoring 13 goals and winning the EFL Cup, Europa League and Community Shield.

He added: "What we have observed is that the transfer nowadays from the goals scored in other leagues, does not necessarily transfer 100 per-cent to the English Premier League".
