Manchester United fans were thrilled with Henrikh Mkhitaryan as he made his debut appearance against Wigan Athletic.
The Armenian midfielder had an excellent showing as he made his mark on Jose Mourinho’s side for the first time following his Borussia Dortmund transfer.
He made it look easy in the first-half as he drifted through Wigan’s defence and made plenty of chances up front but wasn’t able to find the back of the net.
Here’s what fans on Twitter had to say about his debut:
Henrikh Mkhitaryan what a guy. Pulling the strings in midfield creating great chances. Impressed so far! #MUFC.

Mkhitaryan's awareness excellent. Mata won't be only one in trouble if he continues playing like this at 10. #mufc

Henrikh Mkhitaryan already United's best player. Breezing past players in midfield. One lovely backheel to set up chance for Memphis.

Aaaargh Mkhitaryan is scaring me, I think we might actually end up being good.

He has shown plenty of potential and could play a vital role for United as they take on his former club Dortmund in Shanghai on July 22.
It was excellent to have him on the pitch, he played in the No 10 role, despite most believing he’d play on the right-wing, but his impressive performance will also give Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney a run for their money in the middle of the pitch.
