The Sportsman: Will Mkhitaryan take Premiere League by storm?

The Sportsman: Will Mkhitaryan take Premiere League by storm?

The 27-year-old - a member of the Argentinian side that lost to Germany in the 2014 World Cup final - is recovering from a knee ligament injury suffered last April which ruled him out of among other things United's Europa League final triumph over Dutch outfit Ajax. On his day, there are not many opposing teams that can live with the Frenchman's raw power, physicality and strength. Iheanacho may have fewer goals against United but his solitary strike saw him achieve something Vardy has yet to do - as it came at Old Trafford.

Lukaku has scored 15 goals in his last 11 Premier League appearances at home (13 in 10 for Everton, two in one for Manchester United). Gary Speed was a goalscoring, creative midfielder in Howard Wilkinson's side and seemingly an important factor why they didn't get relegated the year after winning the league. In addition, all three are good enough to step out of defence into midfield areas, especially against sides that play with a lone striker.

Beating two average-ish Premier League teams to inaugurate a new season doesn't mean the Red Devils are destined for the title now, of course. - RAHUL RIVONKARWith two emphatic wins, we've always drawn conclusions about United being contenders every season. Not really; it merely mirrored what United were: A sixth-place team lacking consistency, goals and great moments. - BOSCO FERNANDESGreat times do look like they're back at Manchester United, with the outcome of the initial two matches in the Premier League.

"It has not happened so far but going a goal behind will be a different challenge and I want to see how these players try to change a result".

"We are playing happy football because the team is very comfortable on the pitch", he beamed. Lying just beneath these numbers, too, is a hugely encouraging figure for United supporters, which is that Henrikh Mkhitaryan has provided four assists.

Such has been their form that some have already tipped the Red Devils to stay top of the pile until the end of the season, although Mourinho has been quick to calm those expectations and insist that he does not manage "a dream team". He's settled in Manchester, no longer living in a hotel and has got to know his teammates.

Mkhitaryan told United when he joined that it was the only club for which he would have left Dortmund.

He wouldn't start another league game for three months and fans wondered why he'd been signed for such a huge fee, if he wasn't to play. But that was then and Mkhitrayan has since proved he is a very good player in his own right. But with how he's embracing his role as a super sub and sounding much more confident and comfortable in the team this year as opposed to last, he appears back on track toward reaching his vast potential. There was a set-piece assist, there were some counter-attacking assists. Now all that is needed are his goals.
