Arsenal attacker Mkhitaryan: Roma saw one of my best seasons

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has declared his season with loan club Roma among the best of his career.

The midfielder is currently on-loan at Roma from Arsenal and is expected to eventually sign permanently.

He said, "This is one of the best seasons of my career, but I haven't yet scored for Roma in the Europa League and it doesn't matter, as long as the team wins and gets through to the next round.

“I try to do everything I can to help my teammates and win the game. Now we are playing this 3-4-2-1 system, I play closer to Edin Dzeko and the opposition goal. I want to keep working on this and do well for the team."

Roma meet Sevilla tonight with the winner to reach the Europa League final eight.

“We've got to be careful, because it is all decided in one evening and not over two legs," said Mkhitaryan in his press conference.

“If we play with confidence, then we can win. It's important to be balanced in our approach."
