Henrikh Mkhitaryan trolled after nightmare Arsenal debut

Manchester United fans have taken to social media after he endured a nightmare start to life at Arsenal.

The Armenian moved to the Emirates last Monday as part of a straight swap deal that saw Alexis Sanchez move to the Emirates, but the lack of FA Cup action for the Gunners have meant that he has had to wait over a week to make his debut.

Mkhitaryan started on the bench for Arsenal for his first game, coming on as 60th minute substitute for Mohammed Elneny with the scores at 2-1 to the Premier League’s bottom club, Swansea City. However, his debut got off to a nightmare start as Swansea forward Nathan Dyer grabbed a goal within 60 seconds of his introduction, with the Swans going on to maintain their lead and grab all three points.

Mkhitaryan has taken a dig at Jose Mourinho earlier this week, claiming he couldn’t wait to play ‘offensive football at Arsenal’ – a clear jibe at Mourinho’s perceived more defensive style.

United fans wasted no time in taking to social media to remind the world that their ‘defensive’ football actually beat Swansea 4-0 in their corresponding fixture…

 

And even some Arsenal fans joined in…
