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:

Mkhitaryan played for 45 minutes as Mourinho changed his side and brought on Juan Mata, Adnan Januzaj, Ashley Young, Antonio Valencia and Will Keane.

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.
