What a day, what relief for the Old Trafford Faithful. Manchester United finally managed to secure all three points in a home game in the Premier League – and what a scalp it was to take. Tottenham Hotspur were beaten by a 1-0 scoreline, and Jose will certainly sleep well tonight.
Manchester United’s fortunes have definitely turned around since Mourinho decided to slowly introduce Henrikh Mkhitaryan into proceedings, and the Armenian has been nothing short of sensational to watch.
That was the case again this afternoon, as the 27-year-old began to pull the strings with his excellent passing and supreme movement. Then came the moment of the match when Ander Herrera played Mkhitaryan in, who smashed the ball home to score the only goal of the game.
He brings something to the table that we don’t really have in abundance in the current squad – and without doubt, he’s one of the players who does get the fans out of their seats with excitement.
That aforementioned point is backed up all over social media, and after the match, the reds were absolutely buzzing with the performance of ‘Micky T’, so we’ve compiled some of our favourites below.
