The pass by Mkhitaryan to find Aubameyang was poetry in motion.

Say what you like about individual performances but 5 goals 7 assists in 9 games is a superb return from Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang combined. Much needed additions.

That's brilliant from Aubameyang. Didn't panic, knew he couldn't score, knew exactly where Mkhitaryan was, controlled it & teed it up for 3 nil
