Manchester United fans were delighted with Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s performance against Ajax in the Europa League final in Stockholm.
He hadn’t played an incredible first-half but came back in the second-half with a point to prove as Chris Smalling headed down a corner for the Armenian to flick in acrobatically from close range.
Mkhitaryan loves a goal in the Europa League and it was a much-deserved finish after his incredible contribution to get Man united so far in the competition this season, even after he peeled the defender off Paul Pogba in the first half to help the Frenchman pick up the opening goal of the game.
Here’s what supporters on social media had to say about his performance.
Get in mkhitaryan!

Mkhitaryan was the Bundesliga's player of the year last year. Might be the player of the Europa League this year.

Although he’s struggled with consistency this season at Man United, Mkhitaryan has been able to showcase his talent and prove that he’ll be one hell of a player with some guidance from Mourinho.
His best is yet to come but one thing is already clear, there is definitely a position for him in the side as he provides a creative threat that not many others in the team can match.
