Manchester United kept up their 100% Old Trafford record on Sunday afternoon, thanks to a victory against a resilient Everton side. Jose Mourinho’s men kept plugging away, and finally ran out 4-0 winners with another flurry of late goals.
We have to be pleased. United are looking like a well-oiled machine right now, with manager Mourinho building a side capable of winning in a variety of different ways. This is the best football I’ve seen us play post-Sir Alex Ferguson and I’m loving every minute of it right now.
A key part of our success is down to the signings that the self-proclaimed Special One has made. One of the main men last year was Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and he’s carried that form into his second year as a Red Devil.
So far, he’s picked up five assists and today, he scored his first goal of the campaign after being played in by Romelu Lukaku. I thought he was effective again today, and although he did make some mistakes – that’s just the nature of his position.
Twitter was quite mixed regarding Mkhitaryan’s performance as you can see from the tweets we’ve compiled below.
Check out the best tweets aimed at Henrikh Mkhitaryan here:
Mkhitaryan has a weird knack of being anonymous all game and giving the ball away repeatedly, only to score/assist.

Mkhitaryan quietly having a better start to the season than rival playmakers Özil, Eriksen and Coutinho. KDB the only one clearly ahead.

Mkhitaryan's assists have masked some pretty shocking performances. (Cue an assist)

Mkhitaryan would have twice the number of assists if he'd let the ball off a bit quicker

Mkhitaryan needs to sort his out his decision making man. Final ball is atrocious and takes too long to release the ball.

Big fan of Mkhitaryan but Andreas Pereira must be watching this waiting for a recall off loan
