Forgotten Midfielder Included In Manchester United Squad To Face Fenerbahce

Manchester United has named their 21-man squad to face Fernerbahce on Thursday in the Europa league and Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been included. Henrikh Mkhitaryan who joined Manchester United in the summer from German club Borussia Dortmund for a fee of 26.3 million pounds has struggled to play in the team.

Since his move to Old Trafford, Mkhitaryan has not found it easy and has struggled to keep up with the pace of the premiership which has left a lot of fans very frustrated. Though he has had to deal with injuries in his short time at United, when given the chance he has failed to reignite the form that made him one of the most sought after players by top clubs in Europe.

The Armenian midfielder who has so far started one game, the 2-1 defeat against Manchester City where he was taken off at half time, now has a chance to play against Fenerbahce.

United are currently placed second in Group A after suffering a 1-0 defeat to leaders Feyenoord and achieving back to back wins at Old Trafford against Zorya Luhansk and Fenerbahce and will be looking for a good result against the Turkish club on Thursday to secure qualification to the knock out stages of the competition.

Phil Jones who has not made an appearance this season is part of the squad after recovering from a knee injury.

The full squad: De Gea, Romero, Johnstone; Blind, Jones, Darmian, Fosu-Mensah, Rojo, Shaw; Fellaini, Herrera, Mkhitaryan, Lingard, Mata, Pogba, Schneiderlin, Young; Ibrahimovic, Martial, Rashford, Rooney.
