Henrikh Mkhitaryan hits back at Arsenal critics after 'tough start'

[Team News] Arsenal v West Ham – Three Gunners Players Ruled Out Until November

As such it is no surprise that new Arsenal coach Unai Emery is keen on keeping hold of the Welshman, who is reportedly seeking to double his wages at the Emirates Stadium, where he now £110,000 per-week.

Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has defended himself against personal criticism, stating supporters shouldn't expect the same player they saw at Borussia Dortmund.

The Gunners have lost their opening two league matches for the first time since 1992 - to Manchester City and Chelsea.

Mkhitaryan added on a new era under Emery after 22 years of life in north London under Arsene Wenger: "We have a new manager and are trying to adapt to his philosophy and also his demands". At the moment, I think we need to have the control with the possession, with the positioning on the pitch, with more players inside.

"They know the Premier League very well and they have a lot of new players".

Emery has been tasked with steering Arsenal back into the top four this season, with the Gunners not having finished in the Champions League spots for the last two seasons running. I want to be someone new, someone else who can show that he's capable of doing the same for Arsenal as well.

Commander Of Bin Laden Raid: Revoke My Security Clearance Too, Trump
Trump said that in addition to Brennan , the security clearances of nine other former officials are under review. Brennan received a separate endorsement on Thursday from retired Admiral William McRaven, the former head of U.S.

"At the end of your football career, people are going to remember you for what you have achieved, what you have won".

"It's going to be hard because we've got so many attackers and so many world-class players, so I've just got to prove that I'm on that level or as good as them so that I can be ahead of them, which is my aim".

According to Merson, Ozil and Mkhitaryan lack the workforce and aggression to put pressure the way the Spaniard wants.

"I don't know if the current crop have gone past being able to learn that way of playing".

Starting both Ozil and Mkhitaryan in the same team also means one will have to play out wide, and neither are likely to track back when the opposition beat Arsenal's press.
