The Manchester United signing reflects on his first Premier League goal
Henrikh Mkhitaryan posted an upbeat message on social media after the Manchester United midfielder scored the winner in a 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur before coming off with an injury problem.
The Red Devils midfielder suffered a blow on Sunday afternoon after the Armenia international was substituted in the second half of their 1-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur with a suspected ankle injury.
Mkhitaryan has been in eye-catching form for the 20-time English champions in recent weeks after coming into favour under Mourinho following a slow start to his Manchester United career.
The 27-year-old opened his Red Devils account with a well-taken finish in Manchester United’s 2-0 win against Zorya Luhansk in their final Europa League group-stage game on Thursday night.
Mkhitaryan netted his first Premier League goal on just his third start in the English top flight on Sunday after the attacking midfielder placed a powerful finish past Hugo Lloris to score the winner in the Red Devils’ 1-0 victory over Tottenham at Old Trafford.
The Manchester United midfielder posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:
“This was an incredible team win! I dedicate my 1st Goal at Old Trafford to all @manchesterunited fans around the World! Thank u so much for your messages of support! ♥️U”
