Jose Mourinho singled out Henrikh Mkhitaryan for special praise after Manchester United’s impressive 3-0 win over Leicester City on Sunday.

The Red Devils returned to winning ways in style on Sunday with a thumping win thanks to goals from Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Juan Mata at the King Power Stadium.

The result was a welcome one for Mourinho’s men and kept them in the hunt for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Mkhitaryan was named as the man of the match after an impressive display against the Foxes.

And Mourinho admitted that the Armenia international was one of the stars of the show as the Red Devils claimed three points on Sunday.

Speaking to Manchester United’s website after the game, Mourinho said: “There were many good performances.

“The global performance was very good and there were many good individual performances; obviously Micki with the goal and assist and some amazing actions come into the eye, but I could name many players with very good individual performances.”
