Henrikh Mkhitaryan has made a fine start to the 2017-18 campaign, with the Armenian scoring twice and providing six assists in nine appearances for Manchester United.
It would be fair to say that the attacker struggled for consistency last season, but his talent was never in question, and Man United are reaping the rewards this term.
Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial were both excellent in Man United’s 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Wednesday night, but Mkhitaryan also had a fine evening – helping himself to a goal in the second period.
Mkhitaryan has been dubbed ‘the assist king’ by the Man United supporters, but he has added a couple of goals in recent weeks – scoring against Leicester City in the Premier League earlier this month, before scoring his team’s fourth of the night in Moscow.
On Thursday, the 28-year-old, who is valued at £35m by transfermarkt.co.uk posted an image from Wednesday’s match, and the Man United fans were out in force to hail the in-form number 10.
