Man United fans react to Henrikh Mkhitaryan #10 masterclass against Man City

A Manchester derby during pre-season tour is a new prospect to us all, but it was a rare friendly game that we could actually look forward to. Jose Mourinho handed a start to Henrikh Mkhitaryan in a #10 role just in behind Romelu Lukaku, and what a joy it was to watch the man from Armenia play.

From the first minute, he pulled the strings. His directness, control and vision was just insane, particularly on the counter-attack. We saw a very hit and miss Mkhitaryan last term, but now he’s had time to adapt to life in England, this could well be a huge second season just on the horizon.

It’s the pace at which he does everything, and he forces the opposition backwards purely due to his willingness and desire to go out there and have a positive impact on the team.

Last season, he spent most of his time as a winger, but tonight, we got to watch him work in his favoured role. Me, along with large portions of the Old Trafford fan base, seem to agree it was a wonderful performance from the former Dortmund man.

He definitely has the chance to really push on from here on out, and it has certainly been a solid tour thus far – scoring two goals and laying on two assists for his teammates.
