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.
The Old Trafford club ran out comfortable 3-0 winners on the day, in a game which Henrikh Mkhitaryan absolutely stole the show. Our Armenian attacker kicked things off with a brilliant solo goal as the first half was drawing to a close, and he just pulled the strings from in that #10 role.
His passing, movement, creativity and desire to succeed was clear for all to see, and the way he dragged his team through the match and into the right attacking positions was brilliant.
Jose has a real star on his hands in the form of the 27-year-old, and you can see exactly why the gaffer has kept the faith in him over the last few weeks. He’s one of our key players going forward, and you definitely get the feeling that he’ll help Zlatan Ibrahimovic when it comes to finding the back of the net.
The praise for him on social media was more than deserved, so we’ve picked out some of the best tweets aimed his way.
Check out the tweets aimed at Henrikh here:
What a player Henrikh Mkhitaryan is by the way, different gravy at times today. We're lucky to have him. #mufc

Mkhitaryan's the only player that looks like he can create something. Mata, Rashford, Pogba all shite so far.

Mkhitaryan was different class today, he's better in that number 10 role than out wide imo
