Emery says Mkhitaryan ready for Arsenal’s next clash

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is ready to unleash Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Spanish player Denis Suarez on Huddersfield after admitting only three points will do, The Sun says.

The Arsenal boss landed the Barcelona midfielder on loan last month and saw him make his debut off the bench in the heavy defeat against Manchester City.

And Emery reckons his new man, 25, is settling in well, with Mkhitaryan providing another boost by returning to fitness ahead of Saturday, February 9's clash after six weeks out.

Asked if Suarez would start, he said: "The first day last week he was adapting to our style and also in the 25 minutes he played against Manchester City.

"From the first day with us, he was performing well but this week he worked with our coaches.

"Today he is working with different adaptation and better than last week. I hope he will continue, he is improving every day with us.

"Then I hope he can show in the next matches how he can help us better than in the first match against Manchester City.

"Mkhitaryan played 45 minutes on Monday with the Under-23s. Today, Aubameyang is sick but I think he's okay for Saturday.

"Laurent Koscielny was sick but today he is training well. I think the other players are well and will be OK for Saturday."
