Watch: Henrikh Mkhitaryan Puts Manchester United In Front With An Exquisite Finish

It looks like Henrikh Mkhitaryan has finally hit form at the right time for Manchester United.

The Armenian has endured a somewhat frosty relationship with manager Jose Mourinho since arriving in the summer for £26.3 million from Borussia Dortmund and did not feature in the Portuguese’s plans whatsoever in the early stages of the season.

However, after fan criticism and hard work from the Armenian, Mourinho has slowly but surely introduced him back into the starting eleven, and the former Shakhtar star has surely earned his place with some recent displays.

Mkhitaryan bagged his first goal in Manchester United colours on Thursday against Zorya in the Europa League, and soon afterwards told reporters that he had set his sights upon scoring his first goal at Old Trafford.

It took the midfielder just 29 minutes to accomplish that target against Tottenham Hotspur, with United capitalising on a mistake made by Harry Kane.

Mkhitaryan latched onto a through ball and the 28-year-old made no mistake with an emphatic finish past Hugo Lloris.

Needless to say, everyone is convinced by his quality at this stage.
