    Both, he won POTY and had most assists. He was so good for about 5 games in Jose's 2nd season, Pogba got suspended and it all went oh so downhill for Mkhi :D

    Bundesliga is literally the worst league in terms of transition to the prem for me.

    So many flops come from there.

    Nelson's first touch has been poor.

    In the back of my head I wanted either Nketiah or Nelson to go on loan, now I'm hoping Iwobi going means hes first choice backup but he had a lot to improve

    I think Mkhi is the worst player I've seen this weekend.

    He's not even with the squad so don't think there's any chance of that :lol:

    Have to say Xhaka has really stepped it up 2nd half. Controlling it well.

    I think that’s Arsenal language for awful but did manage a few 4 yard back passes

    That's the kind of game you might've dropped points last season tbh

    3 points is 3 points, pressure on United now.

    First 10m he was all over the place, after that he did fine.

    Couldn't be more happy with that. Clean sheet, away win with the B team.

    Defence solid. Youngsters decent especially Guendouzi and AMN.

    Mkhi is the worst player i’ve had the displeasure of watching for arsenal. We pay him 200k a week and he can’t make a simple five yard pass

    He was so bad :joy:

    Literally think you'd be better off with whoever the next academy kid is instead of him. Just as finished as Alexis, just cheaper.

    Annoying because he can get into good positions and is good at driving with the ball but his passing is poor.

    Mkhitaryan did one thing good all game and it was the first half over the top ball to Auba for the volley on goal.

    Could not agree more.

    Quite incredible how bad he is. :D

    Truly awful game for quality, thought Maitland Niles/Chambers/Willock all did well though. Solid from Sok/Xhaka/Aubam in the 2nd half to pull us through. Played at about 20% of our capacity though, just happy we managed to grind that out.

    Surprised how comfortable we looked in defence for the majority of that. Newcastle are probably the worst attacking side in the league but we've conceded to worse. Team should be much better next week. To be able to grind out a 1-0 with that team is great.

    Interesting who plays next week.

    For me the whole back 5 deserve to stay. Guendouzi and Auba too. Xhaka will always start.

    That leaves the attacking trio up for grabs.

    Can see Laca starting, Cebellos or Ozil starting. Maybe Pepe with a start.

    Also it's an odd one with Luiz. Obviously doesn't want to be down the pecking order but he is atm.

    Henrikh Mkhitaryan lost possession more times (15) in the first-half vs. Newcastle than any other player on the pitch, at least five times more than anyone else. [@Squawka] #afc

    wouldn't mind Willock starting instead of Guendouzi in a deeper position and Ozil coming back in. No problem with Nelson starting again either, just cannot have Mkhitaryan anywhere near the pitch.

    I'm actually not a massive Guendouzi fan but I thought he was really good today, with Chambers, AMN and Leno.

    He needs to work on his positioning but he uses his body really well, and has a very good range of passing. Also never afraid to have the ball.

    He might be more suited to a 433 rather than one of the 2 in the 4231.
