Man United fans slam Henrikh Mkhitaryan after Benfica win

Manchester United maintained their 100% record in this season’s Champions League as they beat Benfica 1-0 at the Estadio da Luz on Wednesday night, but Red Devils fans weren’t impressed with Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s performance.

Despite being taken off in the 63rd minute in the goalless draw against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday after struggling to make an impression in the final third, the Armenia international was once again named in the central attacking midfield position for the clash against the Portuguese side.
