Arsenal manager Unai Emery has praised Henrikh Mkhitaryan for his recent form after the Armenia international delivered another good performance in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with north London rivals Tottenham.
Mkhitaryan was kept busy on Saturday, dropping deep to assist the defence as Spurs pushed for an equaliser, with Emery afterwards singling the midfielder out for praise.
“He can get to the two boxes, defensively and offensively,” Emery said after the draw, which keeps Arsenal four points behind their north London rivals.
“ I think he also has the quality to help us in our style of play and for example, he usually can play 90 minutes with being consistent in his work. Another player, maybe, cannot do that with this big intensity," Emeri said.
