Manchester United fans were pleased with Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s cameo appearance against Sunderland at Old Trafford.
He was one of Man United’s best performers since his return to the first-team but suffered an unfortunate injury in a challenge with Danny Rose against Tottenham Hotspur as he was finding his feet.
The Armenian has been forced to watch from the sidelines, but has returned just in time, clinching a dream goal with his moment of genius in the closing minutes of the game.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his display.
Mkhitaryan is super. Twice he's got the ball & twice he's created scoring chances. Should be one of the first names on the team sheet.

Mkhitaryan was brilliant once again, he came onto the pitch, made a big impact creating chances and helped Jose Mourinho‘s men claim all three points in their fourth straight league win.
Hopes are he can keep himself fit moving forward, as his return to the side will be a massive boost moving forward, especially after considering his impact since he was re-introduced to the squad.
His goal was pure filth and I cannot wait to see what more he has to offer, as he continues to give when fans believe they’ve seen it all.
