When has he ever bought a 29-year-old for £60m with no sell-on clause?

As reported by the Mirror, when about those rumours in his pre-match press conference, Wenger responded: "He has a very professional attitude and overall I think that is what you want from every player".

While the Armenian midfielder won the Europa League and the League Cup last term, Mkhitaryan played a bit-part role under the Red Devils boss.

While for Spurs, their most recent signing, Brazilian winger Lucas Moura could be in line for an appearance as he bids to get his career back on track, having been surplus to requirements at Paris Saint-Germain. Who will win the North London Derby on Saturday afternoon?

Just days after Arsenal were lurching towards another crisis, Arsene Wenger can suddenly look to a brighter future thanks to a revitalised attack spearheaded by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Both strikers are proven and capable goalscorers but it seems Wenger is struggling to help Lacazette to revitalise himself in an Arsenal shirt at the moment.

However, Tottenham took over in the second half and opened the scoring in the 49th minute when Kane rose above Laurent Koscielny to head in to the bottom corner for 1-0.

If one moment summed up Mkhitaryan's performance today, it was this utterly awful cross during the first half...

The Gabon worldwide has taken the number 14 shirt, which was previously worn by Henry who is the club's all-time leading goalscorer.

The former Borussia Dortmund star has made a splash in his brief spell with Wenger's men, and spoke about the differences between the Frenchman and the Portuguese ahead of Arsenal's weekend derby against Tottenham.

But maybe the Arsenal fans are right.

Let us know in the comments.

Former Spurs forward Crooks is backing Mkhitaryan to blossom into a top player at Arsenal.
