The Armenian midfielder once again impressed Jose Mourinho after finding the net 29-mins during the first half. The team gets to sustain it as the competition progresses as they get away with a home win of 1-0.
The goal was made through the great assist of Ander Herrera. Mauricio Pochettino’s men tried to create a play but cannot find the open-man that will create some scores for them. Paul Pogba tried to extend the lead via free kick but the ball went through the post.
This was a good way to end their consecutive draw result in the competition, following their win against Zorya in UEFA Europa League.
Meanwhile, Tottenham missed the opportunity to dethrone Manchester City on the fourth spot as they remained on their current standing.
Football critiques started to say that United finally found their form. They know their goal this season, and that is to make it on the next season of Champions League. There’s also a unity among the star players that the men of old Trafford have, Mourinho is doing a job well done so far. The only question now is how long will they be able to sustain it?
Manchester United will meet Crystal Palace this Wednesday in hope of extending their win but who will be the man in-charge on contributing more points if Mkhitaryan will miss the games this week due to ankle injury that he have ten minutes before the rally ends.
Tottenham on the other hand will try to redeem themselves back as they welcome Hull City.
