Henrikh Mkhitaryan is on fire
The 2017-18 Premier League season may be in it’s infancy, but Man United playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan is already on fire.
Man United have won their opening two matches 4-0 against West Ham and Swansea.
Mkhitaryan, who had a bit of a slow first season at Old Trafford, has already contributed four assists in the EPL.
That’s the type of form the Armenian international captain was on at Borussia Dortmund before he join Man United twelve months ago.

How many assists will Mkhitaryan get all season? It’s now highly likely the Man United star hits double figures.
Are 20 Premier League assists achievable?
Man United fans are now comparing Mkhitaryan’s assist stats to Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho.
Coutinho is undoubtedly one of Liverpool’s key creative stars.
But did you know that Coutinho’s best every record of assists in a season at Liverpool stands at 7.
Making it plain, Mkhitaryan only needs four more assists this season to overtake Coutinho’s record.
FACT: Henrikh Mkhitaryan is 3 assists away from matching Philippe Coutinho's best ever league tally.

Coutinho & Barcelona
Will Philippe Coutinho join Barcelona?
Barcelona’s latest bid for Coutinho was transmitted on Friday and immediately rejected by Liverpool.
Somewhat laughably Barcelona set a deadline of Sunday night for Liverpool to confirm again that they had rejected the latest Coutinho offer.
There are no contradictory reports on what will happen next.
The summer transfer window, of course, closes at the end of the month.
