Arsenal boss says not surprised by Mkhitaryan's professionalism

Arsenal face their bitter North London rivals Spurs this lunchtime, and their would be certainly no better way of the talented attacker enamouring himself to his new fans than by putting in a top showing today.

With Arsenal sitting in sixth place and six points back of the top four, Bellerin bemoaned a lack of initiative as the Gunners controlled possession in the first half.

"In the game we didn't do what we should have done, we didn't defend properly the crosses". We still haven't replaced Viera, Campbell and Keown from the past Arsenal teams who were born leaders.

Speaking via Football.London Wenger expressed the striker's frustration at his lack of game time.

Mkhitaryan struggled during Arsenal's 1-0 loss to Tottenham, and made no impact on the match, like all of his teammates. Wenger was incredibly positive with his substitutions. "Of course Wembley is a pitch that is quality, a stadium with a big crowd and it is always a special day in your mind so overall, yes".

"We have a lot of confidence but we just want to win something".

On January 10, the military said the 10 Rohingya men belonged to a group of 200 "terrorists" who had attacked security forces. More than 620,000 Rohingya are thought to have fled to Bangladesh following persecution from the Burmese military.

Meanwhile, Petr Cech is winning his race to be fit for Saturday's clash after returning to training following a calf injury.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino remained neutral when he was asked about whether he feels that Arsenal strengthened or weakened their squad this month.

Defeating Arsenal would help that ambition, while carrying the added bonus of derailing Arsenal. The gap is not massive but it will be tough.

"I won't mention all the details because it is not fair but yes, when I signed for Arsenal, I was in touch with him saying "so, the first step is done, now we are waiting for the second one", said the Armenian.

"Obviously, this is linked to playing in such a great team, which hits a lot of crosses into the box for me and which is generally playing to get the best out of my strengths".
