Henrikh Mkhitaryan WILL NOT travel to Qarabag this week because of international disputes going on between Azerbaijan and Armenia according to Sky Sports.

It’s thought that the President of Azerbaijan borrowed the Armenian Premier’s Flymo, and didn’t give it back when he said he would. This forced the Azerbaijani leader down to the Baku branch of Argos (which is now in the Baku branch of Sainsburys) for a new one causing all kinds of international furores, melees and hullabaloo between the two Western European superpowers that begin with A.

Despite special dispensation being allowed for ‘athletes’ from Armenia, Arsenal are thought to be erring on the side of caution for the trip, and will probably decide to leave Micki at home in a game we should have enough to win without the ex-Manchester United midfield maestro.

The lawnmower situation could (and hopefully will) give Unai Emery a headache come May, as the final of European’s prestige cup competition is also set to held in Baku.

Baku is the country’s capital and if Arsenal conquer all before us on Thursday nights, the Spaniard will have to make a decision whether Mkhitaryan will make the trip for the final.

The Armenian was injured during our last Europa League game, limping off as we beat Vorskla 4-2 at The Emirates last week.

Wonder if he got a 5p Argos Qarabag with his Flymo?
