I love playing with Aubameyang — Henrikh Mkhitaryan

I love playing with Aubameyang — Henrikh Mkhitaryan

The duo played together for three years at Germany's Borussia Dortmund from 2013 and their partnership was best showcased in the 2015/16 season when they notched a combined 62 goals and 44 assists across all competitions.

Mkhitaryan, 29, and German World Cup victor Ozil have the makings of a terrific midfield partnership.

Mkhitaryan helped the Gunners net their second goal on Thursday night as his cross was deflected into the net by an Ostersunds defender to put the north London side in control of the tie.

But Mkhitaryan was far less impressive at Wembey last weekend as Arsenal suffered a 1-0 loss to Tottenham. The German has recently signed a new contract with Arsenal that will keep him at the club till 2021.

Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan reveals that he is delighted at the fact he is reunited with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the club. The two players are great pals.




"We did not have too much time to train together [before the Everton game]", Mkhitaryan told Arsenal Player.

Mkhitaryan added: 'I know him very well, he is one of my best friends and one of the best team-mates I have ever had.

United supporters meanwhile couldn't believe their luck in luring in one of the Premier League's best players in return for someone who simply wasn't performing for them. What can I say?

"Because I was 29 years old, I wanted to play more, because I know that in a few years time I'll be able to end my football career, and it's very important for me to make my name bigger".
