A section of the Arsenal supporters have praised the performance of Henrikh Mkhitaryan following the club’s 5-1 league triumph over Bournemouth on Wednesday night.
The Gunners needed to win against the Cherries to maintain their fourth position in the standings and they managed to rightly do so with a comfortable win in the end.
Mkhitaryan was the standout performer with his direct attacking approach and he grabbed himself a goal and two assists before being substituted after the hour mark.
With the man of the match effort, the Armenian became the first player since Santi Cazorla (Opta Joe) to register a goal and an assist in successive league matches for the Gunners.
Here are some of the best tweets;
Hats off to Henrikh Mkhitaryan tonight. He’s received a lot of criticism since signing, but he’s looked fantastic since returning from injury. He was superb this evening & combined very well with Özil/Aubameyang. 5 goals & assists in his past two starts speaks for itself.

Mkhitaryan one of the best players to watch when he is in form. Really hope he continues this from here onwards. Man of the match so far.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has just completed an hour of sublime football – the kind of performance that he has hinted at but never delivered so far at Arsenal. Fantastic to see.

Ozil class today, but MOTM is Mkhitaryan for me. The intensity in his press and his running on and off the ball from an offensive standpoint, helped us create a lot of openings. It was an absolute joy watching him today. Always making things happen. Needs to carry this on.

Mkhitaryan only returned from a foot injury at the beginning of February and following a couple of average performances against Huddersfield and BATE, he has managed to up his level.
Still, the attacker has not quite shone on the big stage for the Gunners yet and he has the best chance to do so during the weekend north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.
Mkhitaryan had a rather forgettable experience during the previous visit to the Wembley Stadium to face Spurs but hopefully, he can turn up this time around.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have gone through a dismal run of league form which has dropped them within four points of the Gunners and the fans would no doubt love inflicting more damage on their cross-town rivals.
