Former Manchester United winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan is looking forward to playing “offensive football” at Arsenal.

Mkhitaryan joined the Gunners earlier this month and is in line to make his debut against Swansea on Tuesday. He’s our player to watch, actually.

The Armenian already has two goals and six assists in 22 games this season for United, but his form tailed off after a blistering start to the campaign.

He has not scored or assisted a goal in any competition since September, so is looking forward to concentrating solely on attacking at the Emirates Stadium.

“Of course it’s very important to have respect from your manager. I know that he’s demanding and he likes his players to explore,” he said.

“He was one of the [reasons] to join Arsenal as well because everyone knows he’s a great manager.

“I’ve known him for a long time and of course it was not very difficult to make this decision to come to Arsenal, because I think the way that Arsenal play [make] it a dream for every player to come here and play offensive football.”
