Henrikh Mkhitaryan vs. Mikel Arteta

“An emphasis will be on Mikel Arteta to keep a close eye on Dortmund number ten Henrikh Mkhitaryan,” Hereisthecity writes.

The website reflected on the expected battle between Arsenal’s (England) Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta and Armenian national football squad and Borussia Dortmund (Germany) midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, during the forthcoming Champions League group match where Arsenal will play host to Dortmund.

“The Armenia international has been brought to the club as a direct replacement for Mario Gotze and has started life in Germany well with three goals in the Bundesliga.

“Mkhitaryan has the ability to create for teammates and score himself and as such Arteta must be disciplined in his positioning and monitoring of the attacking midfielder,” the website states, in particular.

To note, the Arsenal-Borussia Dortmund match will be played on Tuesday, and the official kick-off is at 10:45pm, Armenia time.
