Manchester United fans were delighted with Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s performance against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
The Armenian had struggled to establish himself at Man United following his highly-anticipated summer move from Borussia Dortmund.
However, since his return to the first-team, Mkhitaryan’s been directly involved in 50% of Man United’s last eight goals in all competitions, two goals and two assists.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his brilliant performance against Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
Mkhitaryan is the best player on our team and it's like not even close ????

Buzzing for Mkhitaryan, this is the player we wanted to see since we signed him.

What a class signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan is becoming. He has so much confidence considering his start at the club. Class finish. #mufc

He’s been sensational since his return and has arguably been one of our best players as he’s proved himself in England’s top flight after struggling with confidence issues.
Supporters grew frustrated with Jose Mourinho following Mkhitaryan’s exclusion from his matchday squads, but it seems the Portuguese boss made the right decision with easing the 27-year-old into the intensity of football in England.
Mkhitaryan has cemented his place in the first-team but the problem for Mourinho will be how to fit Juan Mata back into the side moving forward as he was one of our standout performers at the start of the campaign.
