How Arsenal could line up with Aubameyang & Mkhitaryan

While the Gunners have lost Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, Arsene Wenger has not only drafted in Henrikh Mkhitaryan but also Aubameyang from Borusssia Dortmund for a club record fee.

Manager Sam Allardyce may decide to rest Seamus Coleman after his first appearance in 319 days after a double leg fracture, while midfielder James McCarthy is in the early stages of rehabilitation from a similar injury. The former's similarity to Alexandre Lacazette instantly makes the Frenchman the most expensive substitute in the Premier League while the latter has just two full seasons of high-quality football to his name - 2013/14 and 2015/16 with Borussia Dortmund, hardly a ringing endorsement for a man of his age.

"I have to assess how well he is physically today and how well he feels", said Wenger. He started yesterday, but was still not completely well.

The 29-year-old Gabon worldwide arrives at the Emirates Stadium needing to hit the ground running, with Arsenal already eight points off the top four and facing a lack of goal options due to the departures of Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott. Firstly, it is hard to see how Wenger can fit all of his new players into the same team.

"I have known him for a long time, he has played against Arsenal many times".

Wenger said: "It was hard, because of course Dortmund needed a replacement". For the life of me I can't believe he has not gone on to sign a centre-half. "We were the ones who could offer that to him". "It was a cryptic deal because Giroud went to Chelsea and Batshuayi went to Dortmund".
