Henrikh Mkhitaryan scores outrageous scorpion-kick goal in Manchester United’s 3-1 win over Sunderland [Best Tweets]

Henrikh Mkhitaryan announced his return from injury with a stunning goal against Sunderland.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan limped off during Manchester United’s home game against Tottenham after finding the back of the net, and he missed the following two matches for the Red Devils. After just hitting form, it was a huge blow for the Armenian and many expected him to have a hard time on his return to full fitness.

However, to the contrary, Mkhitaryan looked flawless in his first game after a short spell on the sidelines. He came off the bench against Sunderland and gave the United attack flair and guile that saw them win 3-1.

His best moment came in the 86th minute when he found himself on the receiving end of a Zlatan Ibrahimovic cross. Mkhitaryan, as calm as ever, used the back of his heel to score an stupendous scorpion-kick goal to triple his side’s advantage.

He was lauded by the Old Trafford faithful on social media:

Fans were undoubtedly taken aback by the quality and precision of Mkhitaryan’s goals and made sure everyone knew about it.

While the Armenian was a shade offside, the Twitterati couldn’t care less purely due to the quality of the finish.
