Henrikh Mkhitaryan compounded a bad day for Arsenal by scoring on his debut for Roma.

The Armenian international netted in a 4-2 victory for the Serie A side against Sassuolo.

This came just after Arsenal had given up a 2-0 lead against Watford, to draw 2-2.

 

Mkhitaryan was considered expendable by Arsenal, and his performances for the Gunners justified their decision.

He was too inconsistent a performer and his exit allows Arsenal to give more game time to young players like Reiss Nelson.

However, when Arsenal are dropping points, and Mkhitaryan is starring for Roma, it becomes a more difficult decision to digest.

Mkhitaryan might simply suit Italian football better, with his Arsenal spell following a very patchy run at Manchester United.

Or he could simply fade at Roma too, and fail to build on this bright start.

Here is a look at how Arsenal fans reacted to his goalscoring debut...
