Manchester United's Henrikh Mkhitaryan in action with Everton's Tom Cleverley

Henrikh Mkhitaryan finally makes case as a Manchester United player

Despite performing against Feyenoord and West Ham United, this was the big audition Henrikh Mkhitaryan dare not fluff. Not after what happened in his previous and only Premier League start for Manchester United. Then, José Mourinho named Armenia’s captain in the XI for the derby on 10 September and with Manchester City leading 2-1 at half‑time the manager substituted him and failed to provide him with even an appearance from the bench in the ensuing nine league matches.
