Mkhitaryan’s Moment of Magic
Despite with the game in their bag, Jose Mourinho’s men did not take the foot off the gas and within four minutes of Ibrahimović’s strike, United had scored again, through a moment of sheer brilliance from Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The Armenian, making his return from injury, was picked out by Ibrahimović with a lovely cross from the right-wing, and Mkhitaryan hit home the ball with a stunning, acrobatic backheel flick over his head and past Pickford. It was an outrageous shot from the 27-year old and brought the entire stadium to its feet with his second goal in two games in the league. Truly a magical moment!
