Arsenal should replace Wenger with Conte - Merson

Arsenal should replace Wenger with Conte - Merson

I think at Manchester United he didn't get the freedom he really wanted to go and perform which he had at Dortmund.

After an initial struggle, Mkhitaryan became a key player last season at Old Trafford and even scored in the triumphant Europa League final in Amsterdam previous year.

The Gabon worldwide scored on his debut in Arsenal's 5-1 win over Everton on Saturday as Mkhitaryan recorded a hat-trick of assists in a convincing home victory.

"We won three trophies in a year and a half, it's not every club that does that", he noted.

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.

The former Manchester United midfielder enjoyed an impressive full debut as Arsenal thrashed Sam Allardyce's Everton 5-1 at the Emirates on Saturday. It was a different style of play to what Dortmund played. I think they'd be mad if they didn't.




Wenger said: "His target is to have an impact in the Premier League because he knows that, today, to be acknowledged as a top-class striker, you have to do it in the Premier League".

"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".

Mkhitaryan was also a "no show" in an important match.

Tottenham comes into this game one place and four points better off than their London rivals, in fifth on the Premier League standings.

Arsenal now have an abundance of creative talent in midfield, with Mkhitaryan, Ozil and Wilshere at their disposal.

A positive start has been made in that quest, but next up is a north London derby with Tottenham which promises to provide another stern test of their credentials.
