Mkhitaryan glad to have moved on from Mourinho

"It's always nice to play with your old team-mates, with Aubameyang and Sokratis".

"It's more for the player that he has the feeling that his situation is resolved and he can purely concentrate on the game".

The game petered out and went straight to a shootout, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles scoring from the spot for Arsenal, while Rodri, Victor Mollejo and Adan were successful for Atletico. "I think about the match today first, then training tomorrow, the match on Saturday to continue our preparation", the Spaniard said. Historically, Arsenal has worked with young players to give them the chance to work with the first team, for them to show their quality in each match.

Under Jose, the team was playing a bit differently. "Very young kids, but we have been working with them these days to integrate them into a group which has been working together for seven years, with a very strong defensive structure".

"They know that Costa and Koke and all the rest of the players will rejoin us for the season in August, so right now what they're doing is important".

The Black Ferns were made to fight all the way in beating the US in the semi-finals and the final proved a stroll by comparison. The English won a pulsating quarter-final 24-19 that went into extra time after the scores were tied 19-all.

Mkhitaryan is not in Unai Emery's starting line-up this afternoon as Arsenal take on Atletico Madrid in the International Champions Cup.

Luciano Vietto grabbed the opening goal for Atletico just before the break in a first half which Arsenal dominated.

Lining up alongside Arsenal's two most expensive signings in the front three of Emery's 4-3-3, it was rough diamond Nelson who sparkled brightest.

Quite a fine goal from the Arsenal academy product.

French forward Alexandre Lacazette was denied from close range on three occasions, including a full-length save by Atletico's Jan Oblak after good work from Smith Rowe. Mass substitutions in the last half-hour made for a disjointed finale before the penalty shoot-out.
