Manchester United fans are likely in high spirits today after watching their side beat Leicester City 3-0 on Sunday afternoon, extending their unbeaten run in the Premier League to an impressive 15 matches.
The Red Devils initially struggled to get going in their 4-4-2 set-up but Jose Mourinho soon changed to a 4-2-3-1 formation that put Henrikh Mkhitaryan at the centre of the action, just behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
It didn’t take long for the switch to have an effect; the Armenian assassin sped away from Robert Huth and the rest of the Leicester City defence to open up the scoring, whilst Ibrahimovic doubled United’s lead just moments later.
Mkhitaryan was in action again for United’s third just after half-time, setting up Juan Mata with a delicate one-two inside the box, leaving the Spaniard with just Kasper Schmeichel to slide the ball past.
No doubt, it was an impressive all-round performance from United – Chris Smalling made a staggering 19 clearances and won 11 aerial duels – but Mkhitaryan was a recurring theme throughout.
And it appears the majority of United fans agree with us. We asked them earlier today to vote for their Man of the Match versus Leicester and as the results below show, Mkhitaryan was the resounding winner of our poll.
