Henrikh Mkhitaryan — who joined Arsenal as part of the swap deal which saw Alexis Sanchez move to the former Premier League Champions during last month’s transfer market— is set for his full debut against Everton.
When asked whether he will start all his front four attackers— Lacazette, Aubameyang, Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan— against Everton on Saturday, the Frenchman failed to give an absolute answer but he believes anything could happen before the game as he could use all of them from the start.
“It’s always possible. Will I do it? Maybe. I don’t know. But I think it’s possible, yes,” Wenger said.
According to Arsene Wenger in his pre-match conference, the Armenian forward will start against the Merseyside club. The 68-year-old manager further revealed that another new arrival from Borussia Dortmund Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang won’t start against the Toffees as he has only trained with the team for just two days.
The match will see Former Arsenal player Theo Walcott return to the Emirates stadium where he played for 11 years before moving to the Goodison Park last Month due to limited first-team action.
The England international seems to have returned to form as he scored twice in midweek clash against Leicester City.
According to Wenger, the England striker will be very handful for the Gunners defenders but he hopes they will be able to prevent him from scoring or making any positive impact on the game.
“I bought him when he was 16 years old, so I know how good he can be. He will be one of the major threats going forward for Everton.” Wenger concluded.
