I was initially a little hesitant to do the Mkhitaryan SBC because of the hefty looking price tag and the fact that Arsenal cannot be overly relied on to go deep in the Europa league, but after calculating that it would cost me less than 100k to complete the SBC (before rewards) I took the plunge, and it was worth it! I've always loved 5 star weak foot players in the ST/CF/CAM positions and Mkhitaryan has certainly delivered so far this weekend league with 14 goals and 14 assists in 20 games. He has easily enough pace playing in the CAM position and his 94 shot power (Basic chem style) helped me score some screamers outside the box. 92 curve is also a nice bonus for finesse shots. I was a bit worried about his average composure but it didn't seem to faze him as he was very accurate in his passing in the final third, being crowded with defenders. The 5 star weak foot of course helps in this department. He is also very agile and his good acceleration allows him to get away from every defender in a successful 1 on 1 dribble.
Medium Medium workrates are not the most ideal for the CAM position however I found he was always there when I needed him. Physically he lacks strength and jumping but you have to remember his main stats are guaranteed an upgrade next month because Arsenal are already through to the knockout stage. Stamina wise he is ok, should last 90 mins for everyone, but probably you'll have to take him off in extra time, as he does a lot of work on the pitch defensively as well.
Overall I was very impressed by Mkhitaryan and I look forward to more upgrades to his card in the upcoming months. Best of luck Arsenal, I am counting on you!
