Manchester United fans were disappointed with Henrikh Mkhitaryan after he made his Premier League debut against Manchester City.
The Armenian midfielder was being eased into the starting XI by Jose Mourinho at Man United and had made several appearances coming off the bench.
However, he was given his first start by Mourinho against Man City and seemed like he was rushed back into action after recently picking up a thigh injury on international duty.
Here’s what fans had to say about his performance before he was subbed off in the first-half.
Mkhitaryan all over the place. Expect an early change at this rate

Mkhitaryan really hasn't taken his chance. Very poor first 45 minutes from him.

He had suffered an injury earlier this month in a game against Czech Republic and many believed he wouldn’t recover in time to be a part of the Manchester Derby.
Mkhitaryan failed to keep possession, wasn’t able to take on defenders or provide any precision passes to his strikers.
It was a disappointing showing from Mkhitaryan and it’s a debatable decision from Mourinho whether it was the right to rush him back into action.
