Manchester United fans were thrilled with Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s performance against Anderlecht in the Europa League quarter-final clash on Thursday night.
The Armenian has been a vital player under Jose Mourinho this season and has proven his worth once again, finding the opening goal of the game at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.
He’s been one of our best creative players and has done well in Juan Mata‘s absence, finding goals, creating chances, linking up play and has managed to get the ball forward into attacking positions.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about Mkhitaryan’s impressive performance.
Mkhitaryan always does it

Nine goals in 21 games for Mkhitaryan since his first at Zorya. Huge bonus for #mufc he has a good goal-getting knack in Mata's absence.

He’s an important player for Jose Mourinho and it’s always a pleasure to watch him in action as there’s always a chance of something special being created with him on the pitch.
Against Anderlecht, Mkhitaryan was undoubtedly the Man of the Match, as there were many things that he was doing which he made seem effortless.
Hopes are he can continue his impressive form once Man United face Chelsea in the Premier League on 16 April as the side now sit four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City with a game in hand.
