Henrikh Mkhitaryan is finally showing his best form in an Arsenal shirt.

 His switch to the gunners in the January 2018 transfer window was something of an under-tone in Alexis Sanchez’s swap deal to Machester United. His arrival also coincided with that of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, whose form has been nothing short of brilliant during Mkhitaryan’s stop-start Arsenal career.

 The Armenian returned from a foot injury against Huddersfield this month and has turned in three succesive man-of-the-match performances. In the last two league games, Mhkitaryan created five chances of which three have been assists. There shots in those same games have yielded two goals.

 World class efficiency.

He created some four wasted chances in the Europa league game against BATE Borisov too.
 Most of Mkhitaryan’s struggles at Arsenal have been down to confidence; missed chances and wasting possession. Albeit with a new-found form and confidence that has slowed down the integration of Loan signing Denis Suarez, Mkhitaryan is finally proving the world-class form he showed at Borussia Dortmund.

 The whole team is also clicking at just the right time given Mesut Özil’s renaissance and Alexandre Lacazette’s rich vein of form. With Alex Iwobi and Aubameyang ready to come in and do a superb job alongside the potential of Suarez, Arsenal’s attack is in a right way and they only need to find some defensive balance to maintain a solid top four fight.

 Mkhitaryan would once again look to provide inspiration for the gunners in what’s set to be a cracking North London derby against Tottenham, his performance is something to look out for.
