Henrikh Mkhitaryan is one of Man Utd new signings under the Jose Mourinho reign, he started relatively slow at the beginning. However from there he has gone from strength to strength, linking well with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He is currently on (15 apps) with (3 goals) this season and is being played more and more.
Secondly, his direct style of play is adding value in going forward for united. With Henrikh Mkhitaryan looking to be played behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic in future matches, we have a new option to fit in Juan Mata in the vacant RM position.
With this balance we have an ideal counter attacking team down the left side of the pitch, with the likes of Anthony Martial or Jesse Lingard and a technical RM with the previously mentioned Juan Mata. This will mean Paul Pogba should be moved back to CM alongside Ander Herrera.
Furthermore Henrikh Mkhitaryan key highlights can be found in the video below; check out his key plays for United so far this season. Whilst he is in great form he looks to be a handful that defenders cannot afford to take lightly.
TO SUM UP – United are looking to have the strength and depth of old, so we can finally push to return to the top of the prem, where we should be.
