When it comes to the Europa League, Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a bit of an expert.
The Armenian was the star of Man United’s trophy-winning campaign last season, and is seemingly continuing that good form in the competition with Arsenal.
In fact, with his opening goal for Arsenal in the last-16 clash against Milan this evening, Mkhi has been directly involved in more goals than any other midfielder in the competition, scoring nine and assisting six since the start of the 2015-16 campaign.
That’s not bad at all, is it?
What’s more, his goal is all the more impressive when you consider the fact that Milan haven’t conceded in 599 minutes in all competitions, having found a rich-vein of form under the tutelage of Gennaro Gattuso.
Obviously, the odds were stacked against Mkhi and his teammates going into this one.
The Gunners have been in dreadful form lately, having lost their last four matches in all competitions prior to their trip to the San Siro, including a dreadful home display against Ostersunds two weeks ago.
But in typical weird Arsenal fashion, their seemingly doing alright in this one, having lead 2-0 at half-time.
