Match of the Day pundit tips new boys to lift Arsenal to next level

Date published: Sunday 4th February 2018 11:54

Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy was quick to pile the praise on Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after Arsenal’s 5-1 win over Everton on Saturday evening.

Aubameyang marked his Gunners debut with a well-taken goal, while Mkhitaryan really caught the eye after assisting three times – the first time this season a player has achieved the feat.

Analysing their performance, former Liverpool star Murphy was obviously impressed.

“They [Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan] linked up really nicely today,” he said.

“Mkhitaryan especially was the star of the show in respect of those two.

“His assists were there and we know he’s got that quality.

”Mkhitaryan loves getting in that No10 role and his first touch is always forwards.

“Surprisingly at Man Utd he didn’t get the chances that I thought he should have done.

“He finds the perfect through ball for Aubameyang and that’s a really, really clever finish for his goal.”
