Manchester United maintained their unbeaten start to the Premier League season as they played out a goalless draw with Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, but Red Devils fans weren’t impressed with Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s contribution.
Jose Mourinho’s men came into the clash on Merseyside having won six and drawn one of their opening seven top flight fixtures, but the Portuguese boss made three changes to the team that beat Crystal Palace 4-0 before the international break with Matteo Darmian, Anthony Martial and Ander Herrera coming in for Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and the injured Marouane Fellaini.
It proved to be a pretty uneventful clash however, with David De Gea’s brilliant point-blank save from Joel Matip the best chance either side had.
Mkhitaryan was hauled off in the 63rd minute following his below-par showing, and Man United supporters were quick to take to social media to have their say on the 28-year-old.
While some said he was “useless”, others believed he was “uninspiring and uninterested”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Don't even get me started with Mkhitaryan

Mkhitaryan was TERRIBLE

Service wasn't fantastic but he didn't hold it up well enough and Mkhitaryan was non existent. We needed those two to turn up to win.

Becoming worried about Mkhitaryan. Started the season brilliantly but been poor the last few weeks. Does he need Pogba as Pogba needs Matic?

Whilst I like Mkhi, he’s been very poor today. As has Herrera. #mufc
