14. Henrikh Mkhitaryan

The last recorded player to represent both Arsenal and Manchester United is the Armenian winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan. He was involved in the swap deal which saw Alexis Sanchez go the other way. As a big surprise to everybody, Mkhitaryan actually proved to the better player out of the two after the deal was made.

Mkhitaryan played for Manchester United between 2016-2018 and then matched that stint at Arsenal between 2018-2020. At the two clubs, he played the same number of Premier League matches (39) but he scored more goals at Arsenal (8) than he did at Manchester United (5).

He played for both clubs during their worst periods but he did manage to win the Europa League whilst he was at Manchester United. Mostly known for his creativity, it's safe to say that his best days were left behind at Borussia Dortmund before he moved to the Premier League.
