Iwobi welcomes amazing Mkhitaryan and electric Aubameyang


Alex Iwobi has hailed the arrivals of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after the new signings helped Arsenal to a comprehensive 5-1 win over Everton yesterday.

With three assists for the former, and a delicious debut goal for the latter, they really made a significant impact, as the Gunners showed that at home they’re a force to be reckoned with this season.

The Nigerian international played his part too, but was asked about the fresh faces and enthused about their contributions.

On Aubameyang

“You can see that he’s got electric pace and an eye for goal as well. He was involved in the link-up play as well, so we’re definitely happy to have him and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the team.

“He’s fun. He’s learning faces but he’s definitely enjoying his time here and there’s still more to come from him.”

On Mkhitaryan

“We’ve seen glimpses in training and we were just waiting to see it on the pitch. As you can see from today, he’s just an amazing player.”

Iwobi also got in on the action, with an assist for Aaron Ramsey, and he played his part in that lovely fourth goal with a precision pass into Mkhitaryan which allowed the Armenian to provide the chance for Aubameyang.
