It wasn’t that long ago when Henrikh Mkhitaryan wasn’t playing for Manchester United, and the Armenian was being somewhat frozen out of things by the manager due to a poor performance on derby day. However, after some wonderful man-management, the attacker is fully firing right now.
Manchester United certainly took a commanding lead in their Europa League two-legged tie against Saint-Etienne, as Jose Mourinho’s side won 3-0. The scoreline certainly flattered the Red Devils, with one man, in particular. stealing the limelight after scoring a hat-trick.
Well, a message has well and truly been sent to Jose Mourinho. The self-proclaimed Special One had been reluctant to play Anthony Martial recently, but today, the Frenchman got a start and more than took his chance as he grabbed a goal and an assist in a 2-0 win.
Manchester United got back to winning ways in brilliant style over the weekend, as the Red Devils stuck three past a very poor Leicester City team on their own turf. Once again, Anthony Martial remained on the bench for that game – and immediately following, the papers began to gossip.
Manchester United eventually ran out comfortable 3-0 winners away at Leicester City this afternoon, with Jose Mourinho’s men looking comfortable for the most part. The Red Devils are now on a fifteen game unbeaten streak in the league, and are within touching distance of the top four.
Manchester United got back to winning ways in brilliant fashion this afternoon, and Jose Mourinho will surely be delighted. The Red Devils are now within two points of the top four, and things are certainly boding well going forward.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic may well be our Swedish hero, but my he wasn’t great during the ninety minutes yesterday. The influential striker just looked off the pace from minute one for whatever reason, but that said, he wasn’t alone in that regard as the overall performance was pretty awful.
The 35-year-old is usually so reliable when it comes to those big moments. His game is based on holding the ball up and allowing runners beyond him, but when our main man is struggling to control the ball, it stops any attacking momentum we have.
On top of that, his finishing was unusually lacklustre, and on a good day he could’ve had a couple of goals to his name. To be fair, all players have poor days from time-to-time, and it wouldn’t be fair to criticise him too heavily, but at this point in the season, frustrations are obviously high.
Manchester United’s passionate fans took to Twitter regarding the club’s current top scorer, and it’s fair to say he came in for a fair bit of stick…

Pogba, Ibrahimovic, Mata and Blind all missed simple opportunities. Other teams don't need 5+ clear chances to pick up 3 points. Why do we?

You will defend Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic but then slate Wayne Rooney. This generation is a joke.

Ibrahimovic is so poor. Wants the ball at his feet, offers nothing else. Mourinho seriously needs to consider dropping him
— Hassan (@HassanSidat) February 1, 2017
When Ibrahimovic is off his scoring form, nothing enters. Extremely poor! #MUFC

Ibrahimovic and Pogba better be benched on the weekend!! Dreadful display. Pogba been poor consistently as well!

All in all, I've been rather disappointed with Zlatan and Pogba this season. They've not been bad by any means but nowhere near good enough
— Colin (@Rojonaldo) February 2, 2017
@ForzaMartial zlatan was the worst player, diving and constantly offside, pogba wasn't good enough but wasn't bad, rojo and Jones were solid

Zlatan saying that Mata had a bad finish. What did that Swedish donkey do with his chances?

This evening, Manchester United dropped more points at home to a so-called ‘lesser’ side. Jose Mourinho’s men drew 0-0 with Hull City, and the performance as a whole was just an absolute mess. You have to say that the Red Devils just didn’t deserve anything else.
Well, Jose Mourinho has often been known as being rather harsh on young talents in the footballing world, and we could be seeing another case of that here – regarding Anthony Martial. The Frenchman hasn’t been in the Manchester United manager’s good books recently.
