Henrikh Mkhitaryan: This is bad news for Man United
Henrikh Mkhitaryan admits Manchester United's current injury crisis is not good news - but says they can cope
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has admitted that Manchester United’s injury crisis is “bad news” for the Red Devils but is confident that Jose Mourinho’s men can cope against West Brom on Saturday.
Manchester United could be without as many five key players for the visit of the Baggies to Old Trafford, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ander Herrera suspended, and Paul Pogba, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling currently nursing injuries.
However, although Mkhitaryan accepts that missing the star men will indeed be a setback for the Red Devils, the Armenian playmaker is fully expecting Manchester United to cope in their absence.
Speaking to Manchester United’s website, Mkhitaryan admitted: “For us, it’s bad news but we’re ready to play.
“Everyone knows they have to take the responsibility to try to do their best to help the team win.”
Manchester United, who finished fifth last season, head into Saturday’s clash with West Brom looking to continue their push for Champions League qualification.
