Manchester United fans were thrilled with Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s performance in the Europa League Round of 16 fixture against FC Rostov.
The Armenian missed United’s last two fixtures, including the EFL Cup final against Southampton, after he picked up an injury against St Etienne in the last round of the competition.
However, he returned in fine form even though Jose Mourinho was unsure on whether to play him after seeing the state of the pitch, as he linked up with Zlatan Ibrahimovic to find the opening goal of the game.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance against FC Rostov.
Mkhitaryan you beautiful bastard! We have really missed you 😘😘😘

The two best things out of many I hav seen in Mkhitaryan, is his intelligence and agility. He has massive potential. He is our best signing.

I'm so happy we have a player like Mkhitaryan in our squad.

He’s been directly involved n six goals in his last seven appearances for Man United with four goals and two assists, and it’s a massive boost to have him fit once again.
We’ve missed Mkhitaryan’s presence on the pitch and as he’s showcased against FC Rostov on his return, he’s one of our best players.
Hopes are he can maintain his fine form as he’ll undoubtedly be in the squad as Man United face Chelsea in the FA Cup Quarter-final on March 13
