Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have made promising starts to their Arsenal careers - but Shkodran Mustafi feels the rest of the squad need to be at their best if our two new signings are really to flourish.
The pair have a combined five goals and six assists since joining us in January, and Mustafi feels there is a lot more to come.
“Obviously they’ve known each other for a long time, but football isn’t about one pair, or three players playing together,” Mustafi told Arsenal Player. “We need to find more solutions as a team playing from the back up to the front and through the whole team.
“We have to try to find more solutions so we can bring everyone’s strength [into play]. That’s when we are at our best, when we can play the way that everyone is playing at their strengths. Then we achieve different results.
“For Pierre, I think it’s a little bit too early to make a statement, because I think it needs time. He needs games to see how he’s going to settle.”
