"Once the game has started, these guys have top-level experience", Wenger said of Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Lacazette meanwhile was an unused substitute that afternoon and Petit, part of the double-winning squad in 1997-98, believes Wenger has already lost faith in the France worldwide.

The goal made Aubameyang the sixth Arsenal player to score on their Premier League debut under Arsene Wenger, and the eighth overall.

"After six months his statistics are not exactly tremendous".

Arsenal travel to face their bitter rivals Tottenham tomorrow (12.30pm), and they will be eager to close the gap in the table as they trail Mauricio Pochettino's men by four points.

Merson thinks it's akin to the Robin van Persie transfer Manchester United forced through - and Wenger only has one thing in mind when it comes to the player and what he can bring to the club.

Cleveland wasn't alone in making moves before the deadline. "You shouldn't make a move just to make a move at the deadline". Former player: "The Lakers are the biggest winners, mainly because of what they can do this summer with that cap space".

Alderweireld was hurt in the Champions League victory over Real Madrid on November 1 but believes cautious and "clever" rehabilitation work has put him in the frame to start against Arsenal in tomorrow's lunchtime kick-off.

Mkhitaryan told the Press Association: "I don't want to find excuses". No, it is just linked with the fact that at Wembley you play special games where you are under pressure to perform and we responded well to it every time.

Wenger has liked what he has seen from the forward, who will look to impress when his side visit Tottenham on Saturday.

"If you play football, even in five-a-side, it is hard to score goals so when the guys can repeat that at the top level they have that quality. I can understand him from one step and hopefully for the next games we are going to achieve more".

Aubameyang's impact was even more impressive given he had only two 45-minute training sessions and was battling an illness ahead of his debut.
