The last player to grab a hat-trick of assists for us was Santi Cazorla. And there was something Santi-like about the way Henrikh Mkhitaryan made us tick on Saturday.
The new signing set up two goals for hat-trick Aaron Ramsey and another for his old/new team-mate, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
“Our partnership was really good and I’m very happy for that,” said Micki after the game. “Not only because I assisted Auba, but also Aaron. It was a well-deserved win and we have to keep doing the same in the next games so we can get more points.
“We played very good attacking football in the first half. In the second half, it was a bit hard because we were already winning 4-0 and we were not as focused as we were in the first half.
“I can say that I really like the way Arsenal play and I hope for it to continue.”
