Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s move to Manchester United in summer 2016 caused quite the stir after he’d scored 23 goals and tallied up a similar number of assists during his final season at Borussia Dortmund.
But we’re still waiting for that rip-roaring Black-Yellows attacker to truly turn up at Old Trafford. Mkhitaryan took most of 2016/17 to earn himself a regular role in the first team and despite starting the new campaign strongly, his form has once again dipped in recent weeks.
In fact, Mkhitaryan has scored just once in the Premier League since August, while he’s failed to add to the five assists he amassed during the opening month of the season.
But United can’t afford any passengers when they take on Tottenham at Old Trafford in Saturday’s 12.30pm kickoff, so we asked Red Devils supporters earlier this week whether the 28-year-old should be in the starting XI.
According to our poll, though, 76% of United fans are willing to give Mkhitaryan another chance against Spurs. But some improvement will surely be needed if the speedy attacker is to have a positive impact on the match.
