Henrikh Mkhitaryan voted Player of Matchday 16

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been voted the player of Matchday 16. The Armenian international convinced the voters with his impressive performance in the match against Eintracht Frankfurt.

With 54 percent of the ballot Mkhitaryan clearly won the first place in the voting on Bundesliga’s official website.

Dortmund began determined to make amends and immediately went on the attack. They had a couple of half-chances early on, but it was Frankfurt who broke the deadlock when Alex Meier fired in from the edge of the area following a swift counterattack.

BVB fought back, however, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan equalizing from close range following Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s pass.

Aubameyang should have scored just before the break, but he missed a penalty after Slobodan Medojevic felled Gonzalo Castro in the box – an offence for which the Eagles defender received a second yellow. It was one-way traffic towards the Frankfurt box in the second half and eventually the pressure took its toll, with Aubameyang, Mats Hummels and Adrian Ramos each scoring excellent goals to give Thomas Tuchel’s men a thoroughly deserved victory.
