Arsenal ace pinpoints wthat the club learned after Chelsea defeat

The Gunners are still awaiting their first point of the new campaign

Arsenal had a very busy summer as Unai Emery was appointed as the new manager of the club after Arsene Wenger decided to leave the club after 22 years. The Spaniard signed a three-year deal worth £15 million.

He was given the charge with the task of rebuilding the squad and returning the club to the European elite while challenging for other major honours, after they finished sixt in the Premier League last season resulting in missing the Champions League this season.

The Gunners have made 5 new additions this summer: Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria, Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient, Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund and Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus.

However, the Premier League giants haven’t got to a great start as they have begun life under Emery with back-to-back defeats in the Premier League against their big rivals.

Last weekend they lost 2-0 to Manchester City and were beaten by Chelsea 3-2 on Friday as the club are still waiting for their first point of the new campaign.

However, Henrikh Mkhitaryan wants Arsenal to learn form the mistakes both in defense and attack. He is also relishing to get it right in the next match.

The midfielder told Arsenal’s official website: “We didn’t start very well, conceded two goals.

“But then afterwards we found ourselves, believed in ourselves and then started playing better than them.

“We scored twice to equalise, scoring two goals in 10 minutes, and then maybe we had another two chances to score to win the game. Unfortunately we didn’t take them.

“The second half was difficult because we looked a little bit tired and we didn’t create the opportunities to score. In the end, they scored the third goal and it was hard for us to come back.”

He added: “I’m pretty sure that in the next games we’ll have better results and play better football.

“We won’t face Chelsea and Manchester City in the next games, so it doesn’t make a difference who we’re playing now.

“It’s a very good opportunity for us to play against them and see what level we are at, what mistakes we’re making and looking at the next step to improve and be better.”
