The midfielder revealed the reasons that encouraged him to leave Manchester United and play for Arsene Wenger, who he expects to learn a lot from.

Mkhitaryan started on the left of a three-pronged attack which also featured Mesut Ozil and fellow January signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Armenia global provided three assists on his full debut during last week's 5-1 win over Everton at the Emirates and summed up the difference between his two most recent bosses by contrasting their approach to man management.

"Mkhitaryan was used and abused at United but, under more of an "artistic director", the Armenia captain looks as if going to be a big hit for the Gunners".

"I don't want to blame anyone".

"I liked Henrikh Mkhitaryan at Borussia Dortmund, I liked him at Manchester United and I adored what he did for Arsenal against Everton", Crooks told BBC Sport.

"I have read a lot about the derby, about playing against Tottenham and it is not the first time I have seen or heard that because I have been in the Premier League for quite a long time so I know the importance of the game". I don't have anything to prove to anyone.

Now Mkhitaryan has said his new manager, Arsene Wenger, is much more of a players coach than his former boss at United. I am starting a new chapter in my life, in my football career and I am very happy to be here. "I met him a few times before by coincidence and he looks highly focused on his job". Wenger stated that Aubameyang has all the qualities to flourish at Arsenal but reckoned that it will be too early for him to chase Henry.

The striker's goal was a superb header, but it was Kane's work ethic which really caught Brady's eye and the Arsenal legend believes the England hitman worked harder than the Gunners' three star players put together. "Secondly, we have to think that we have to win titles because at the end of your football career only the titles mean something", he added.
