Henrikh Mkhitaryan says that he and his Arsenal team-mates are enjoying their new style of play under Unai Emery – but admits that there is still plenty of room for improvement.

The north London side have been getting used to life under new boss Emery after he was brought in as the club’s new manager at the end of last season after Arsene Wenger’s decision to step down.

Arsenal have won their last three games in the Premier League after having suffered back to back defeats by Chelsea FC and Manchester City in their first two games of the season.

The Gunners kicked off their Europa League campaign with a 4-2 win at home to Vorskla on Thursday night as they made it four straight wins in all competitions.

And Mkhitaryan says that there is still plenty of work to do for the Gunners despite having begun the season relatively strongly under their new manager.

Speaking to BT Sport on Thursday night, Mkhitaryan said: “I think everyone enjoys the way we’re playing now.

“It’s not still the best, but we will keep working and game after game we will show better than that.”

Arsenal will now switch their attentions back towards Premier League affairs and their home clash against Everton at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

Emery has been tasked with steering Arsenal back into the top four this season after they ended up sixth and without a trophy under Wenger last term.
