[Tweets] Mkhitaryan To Start Against Arsenal? United Fans React To Armenian’s Recent Performance

Manchester United fans have heaped praise on Henrikh Mkhitaryan after the Armenian helped his national side come from two goals down to earn a 3-2 victory against Montenegro.

Mkhirtaryan ran the show against Montenegro helping his side move off the bottom of Group E and to within four points of Montenegro at the top.

His outstanding performance led to the United faithful taking to Twitter in which they heaped praise on Mkhitaryan calling for Mourinho to start the Armenian against Arsenal on Saturday at Old Trafford.

Arguably the standout performer in the Bundesliga last term Mkhitaryan has yet to be given a proper run of games in the Manchester United side so far this season under Mourinho. A cameo against Hull City at the KC stadium and forty five minutes against Manchester City at Old Trafford is not enough to cast judgement on a player who has played so little football but with the Armenian impressing against Montenegro he could force his way back into Jose Mourinho’s thinking ahead of the Arsenal clash.

Mkhitaryan still stands as one of the finest midfielders in European football and in playing against the Gunners he would give united that extra piece of attacking quality in the final third. In a game that is likely to be a close drawn affair United will need a player of Mkhitaryan’s ability which can find that decisive pass or wriggle around the opposition to score or provide that match-winning goal.

Arsenal are a side who likes to have time on the ball and with Mkhitaryan on the pitch he can provide Mourinho that the determination, work rate and effort needed to defeat the Gunners.

He is a player that badly needs game time and in playing him against the Gunners it could provide Mkhitaryan a perfect opportunity to kick start his footballing career at Old Trafford.
