Manchester United fans were left delighted with Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s short performance against Saint Etienne on Wednesday afternoon.
The Armenian has been in remarkable form at Man United and has been directly involved in 11 goals in his last 16 games, with six goals and five assists.
He found the opening goal of the game against Christophe Galtier’s side in the first-half as he combined with Juan Mata who played in a perfect ball from out wide.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his short appearance after he was taken off in the 25th minute with a problem.
Juan Mata to Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Won't get tired of saying that again. Such flair and creativity. Game over. Tie over.

Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were born to be on the same team

With the Armenian on the pitch you can always rely on United to create a moment of magic, as he’s oozing with the confidence to get the ball forward, create chances and score goals.
Mkhitaryan has easily been one our best players in recent weeks and hopes are his injury is nothing serious as he would have definitely been starting in the League Cup Final against Southampton on Sunday.
The extent of his injury still remains to be seen but after pointing towards his hamstring after walking straight down the tunnel, it certainly isn’t looking promising.
