Arsene Wenger was delighted to finally see Henrikh Mkhitaryan in an Arsenal shirt as the Armenia international lit up the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Mkhitaryan set up three goals as he arguably even outshone hat-trick hero Aaron Ramsey with the Gunners running riot against Everton with a 5-1 victory.

The former Manchester United man, who joined in January in a swap deal for Alexis Sanchez, set up Ramsey in the opening six minutes before teeing up debutant Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and later laying on a pass for Ramsey to sweep home for his treble.

"I met Mkhitaryan before, before he came here, because I always liked his game but he’s a player completely focused on football, dedicated totally to the game," Wenger said.
