Manchester United fans react to wonderful Henrikh Mkhitaryan ball to Rashford

It wasn’t that long ago when Henrikh Mkhitaryan wasn’t playing for Manchester United, and the Armenian was being somewhat frozen out of things by the manager due to a poor performance on derby day. However, after some wonderful man-management, the attacker is fully firing right now.

The way he glides past his man so easily is a joy to watch, and the 27-year-old’s intelligence when he’s on the ball is one of his biggest selling points. On top of that, he has a keen eye for a pass, and that was on display wonderfully against Blackburn Rovers this afternoon.

Our Armenian found himself in space in the middle of the park, when he spotted Marcus Rashford splitting the opposing defence with an excellent run. Not only did he spot his man in space, he found him brilliantly and it looked so easy for him.

As you’d imagine, the plaudits all over social media were plentiful, and rightly so. We’ve compiled some of the best tweets for your viewing pleasure below, so feel free to take a look.

This is Mkhitaryan’s defence-splitting ball:
