Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been named in Manchester United’s 21-man squad for Thursday’s Europa League group game at Fenerbahce along with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney, plus Phil Jones, who has just recovered from injury.
The attacking midfielder has been absent since struggling during the September derby defeat at the hands of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City – his only start for the club.
Mkhitaryan has played just four times since making the £26million switch from Dortmund but is flying out with United’s squad to face the Turkish giants as they look to get back to winning ways.
United’s recent form has been patchy to say the least but it doesn’t seem to have had a detrimental effect on morale in the camp.
United are second to Feyenoord in Group A, with each club on six points. Fenerbahce, who United beat 4-1 a fortnight ago in the reverse game, are third on four points, with Zorya Luhansk bottom, with one.
Manchester United from: David De Gea, Sergio Romero, Sam Johnstone, Daley Blind, Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Morgan Schneiderlin, Ashley Young, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Wayne Rooney.
