Mkhitaryan: Arsene Wenger 'friendlier' than Jose Mourinho

Won't Blame Anyone For Manchester United Struggles – Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Henrikh Mkhitaryan: Arsene Wenger Better on Players than Jose Mourinho

Nobody can deny Mkhitaryan's ability but his dedication was questioned by Mourinho after the Armenia global sealed his January move to Arsenal as part of Alexis Sanchez's switch to Manchester United.

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.

Starting out in Germany, the duo accrued 29 goals and 14 assists between them as Dortmund finished second to Bayern Munich.

And, with new boys Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan making their maiden north London derby appearances and Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli in the midst of a diving storm, the Arsenal manager cautioned his players to stay focused. He became the first Armenian to ever join the club and later the first to win a major European trophy.

"Obviously, this is linked to playing in such a great team, which hits a lot of crosses into the box for me and which is generally playing to get the best out of my strengths". But it's a good example to follow. "He will be a bit sharper on Saturday than he was last week", Wenger said.

Israel's United Nations ambassador to make pitch for recognizing Jerusalem as capital
In an address from the White House, Trump described his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the seat of Israel's government as merely based on reality.

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.

But Wenger also knows that this does not guarantee goals in the Premier League. He said he needed to win the league and he got Robin van Persie to score him the goals to get above Manchester City.

Moura is in contention to make his debut, while Toby Alderweireld, Harry Winks and Danny Rose, who all returned for Spurs against Newport County, are fit to play.

Incredibly, the Gunners don't play again in the Premier League until March 1, when they take on league-leaders Manchester City.
