Mkhitaryan And Aubameyang Hold Up Shirts Aimed At Spurs Ahead Of North London Derby
Ahead of the North London derby on Saturday afternoon, pictures of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan holding a rather interesting shirt have emerged online.
Arsenal fans will be delighted to hear that new signing Mkhitaryan is already making a huge impression on the training ground after it emerged that the Armenian has been staying behind after every session to help strengthen partnerships with the likes of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
"He has a very professional attitude and overall I think that is what you want from every player. I am not surprised about that because I find that absolutely normal."

Arsenal fans have every right to be excited about Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang, who formed a lethal partership during their time at Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.
Signed by Jurgen Klopp from Shakhtar Donetsk and Saint-Etienne in the summer of 2013, the pair struck up a wonderful and instant understanding in the Bundesliga and the stats racked up by them in terms of goals and assists, is very impressive.
Starting out in Germany, the duo accrued 29 goals and 14 assists between them as Dortmund finished second to Bayern Munich.
in 2015/16, Mkhitaryan's final season as a Dortmund player, they contributed to a sensational 90 goals over the course of the season. Aubameyang went goal crazy, while his colleague was swimming in the assists.
