Steve McManaman has been very impressed by Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s strong start to the season at Manchester United, The Sport Review reports.
Steve McManaman has claimed that Henrikh Mkhitaryan is looking much more dangerous in the Manchester United team this season.
Former Liverpool and Real Madrid star McManaman believes that Mkhitaryan is now close to producing the kind of form which earned him his move to Manchester United from Dortmund last year.
Speaking on Premier League Tonight on BT Sport on Saturday, McManaman said: “Mkhitaryan now, a year later, suddenly looks as if he’s going to make assists every game.
“He looks like the player he was when they brought him from the Bundesliga to the Premier League.
“Yes, he was the king of assists in the Bundesliga, but last year he took time to settle, which is understandable.
“Suddenly he’s started the season and I think he’s got more assists in two games than he did in the whole of last season. He’s really started the season well.”
Manchester United are now preparing to take on Leicester City in their next Premier League game as they look to continue their strong start to the season in Mourinho’s second campaign in charge.
The Red Devils are top of the Premier League table on goal difference after their strong performances.
