Arsenal star Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed what he and the club are targeting this season and it’s not as you would probably have expected.
The Armenian moved from Manchester United to the Emirates in January as part of the Alexis Sanchez deal and it’s safe to say he has a new lease of life.
Impressing in his initial few games with the Gunners, the player is already targeting some big objectives this season.
It has been mentioned that the club should be going all out in the Europa League this season with the top four seemingly out of their reach.
The Gunners have impressed in Europe so far and have had no slips ups.
Though, Mkhitaryan has claimed that he is not just targeting getting in the Champions League through winning the Europa League.
In fact, he has claimed that he is still looking to get the side into the top four.
“Of course, it [Europa League] is very important, but I wouldn’t say we stop ourselves from saying we are going to compete in the top four,” Mkhitaryan told ESPN .
“We are still in the competition because in the English Premier League anything is possible.
“Maybe sometimes, teams can lose two, three times in a row and we win our games so anything is possible.
“We are trying to win every game in every competition and, of course, we will be glad if we can win the Europa League as well, but if we can be in the top four, it will be even better.”
Wenger confirms Mkhitaryan will start against Ostersunds. Adds that Ozil was “in bed Monday, Tuesday with sickness” and that “he should be OK for Sunday.”
