Arsene Wenger 'friendlier' than Jose Mourinho — Mkhitaryan

Henrikh Mkhitaryan was involved in one of the biggest deals of the January transfer market when he swapped Old Trafford for the Emirates with Chile global Alexis Sanchez heading in the other direction.

The Gunners completed the signing of the Gabon worldwide from Borussia Dortmund on transfer deadline day, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £60 million, and he made an instant impact for his new club, scoring on his debut during his side's 5-1 win over Everton on Saturday.

"It's a bit too early to compare him to the best player ever who played here", Wenger said.

A blur of one-touch passing, with Ozil, Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi switching positions behind Aubameyang, Arsenal's effervescent performance was by far their most encouraging of a season that sees them engaged in a draining battle to qualify for the Champions League.

N. Korean leader offers to meet S. Korean president

"The day Conte leaves Chelsea, if I was Arsenal, I'd be straight on the phone", Merson told Sky Sports. We understand each other on and off the pitch, that's why it's easier on the pitch.

Mkhitaryan failed to make an impact at Old Trafford during his 18-month spell at Manchester United following a £30m move from Dortmund.

Rumours circulated that the 29-year-old was staying behind after Arsenal training to help out in the striker's drills.

On the contrary, he says, Arsene Wenger is more understanding towards his players, and the Frenchman has a "friendlier" approach towards his players. A lot, he was very hard.

The former Manchester United midfielder enjoyed an impressive full debut as Arsenal thrashed Sam Allardyce's Everton 5-1 at the Emirates on Saturday.

At Arsenal I think he will have players around him running off the ball, taking the ball, and he will create goals and he will score goals.

Those are some boots to fill in north London, with Pires and Henry having helped Arsenal to Premier League titles and FA Cup triumphs.

"He played only one game at home against Werder Bremen. That is one of his challenges, I think, by joining us".
