Cech: Arsenal style will suit Mkhitaryan

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has welcomed the arrival of Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Whether he starts or enters the fray from the bench at Swansea City tonight, goalkeeper Petr Cech is confident Mkhitaryan will hit the ground running with no issues.

“I genuinely believe the way we play will suit him," he said.

“If you can see his performances for [Shakhtar] Donetsk or for Armenia or even especially at [Borussia] Dortmund you know he is an exciting player with huge qualities on the ball and with his speed. I believe the way we will play will go well with him and we will see his real quality coming out.

“He is a very intelligent player. He is very skilful and very quick as well. I have played many times against him for the Czech Republic as well and you could see how good he is."
