Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang hit double figures for goals since Arsenal move

Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan and striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both scored and created a goal in Sunday’s 3-0 win over Watford, taking their collective tally to 11 goals in all competitions since moving to the club.

Mkhitaryan has scored two goals and made five assists in eight starts (five in the Premier League, three in the Europa League) while Aubameyang boasts three goals and one assist in five league games, having only been at the club for six weeks.

The former Borussia Dortmund pair have scored or created a goal for Arsenal every 113 minutes on average which proves they’re contributing. Mkhitaryan has only been at the club nine days longer than Aubameyang and Arsene Wenger will be happy with the form of the attacking duo.

There was a lot of pressure for the midfielder and forward upon their move to the Emirates Stadium but they appear to be settling in well. Mkhitaryan was struggling for form at Manchester United while Aubameyang fell out with Dortmund before they agreed to sell him on, but both players look rejuvenated.

Arsenal’s top scorer this season is Alexandre Lacazette, who joined the club from Olympique Lyonnais last summer, with nine goals and three assists in 26 Premier League appearances. Mesut Ozil has the most assists (8).
