Manchester United fans react to outstanding Henrikh Mkhitaryan debut

Manchester United’s first game of the season is in the books, and it was a win for Jose Mourinho’s men. They beat Wigan 2-0, thanks to goals from both Andreas Pereira and Will Keane. However, a certain new signing stole the show.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan played for the first 45 minutes, and it feels like we’ve unearthed a real gem of a player in the talented Armenian. He found himself in those pockets of space, picked the right pass more often than not and perhaps most importantly – wasn’t afraid to beat his man.

We know it’s ‘only’ Wigan, and it’s ‘only’ pre-season, but you do feel that Mkhitaryan is going to be a joy to watch over the next few years. As you’d imagine, United fans were clearly buzzing with their new man on social media, so we’ve compiled some of the best tweets.
