In his 11th appearance for Manchester United, Henrik Mkhitaryan finally broke his duck with the Red Devils courtesy of a fine opener away to Zorya Luhansk.

After dominating the Europa League game on a chilly Ukrainian evening, Jose Mourinho’s men doubled their advantage late on, courtesy of a Zlatan Ibrahimovic effort with the Premier League club thus securing their place in the last 32 of the competition.

It’s taken the £26m Mkhitaryan some time to finally make his mark with United, but the Armenian playmaker is starting to rediscover his best form under Mourinho.

The 27-year-old’s maiden goal for the Red Devils came just after the break, with the former Borussia Dortmund man breezing through a feeble Zorya defence before neatly firing home (after an effortless nutmeg)…

Late on, Ibrahimovic sealed the deal for the visitors after a lovely pass from Paul Pogba…

The win sees United finish second in Group A, one point behind Fenerbahce but a comfortable five ahead of third-place Feyenoord.


It may not be the Champions League, but a decent European adventure can only boost a side who continue to struggle domestically.
