Henrikh Mkhitaryan has come under fire once more – this time for his performance in Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Ostersunds in the Europa League.
The Armenian endured a tough time from his own fans at Manchester United for a series of inconsistent and lethargic showings, and Arsenal supporters are starting to sense a case of déjà vu at present with Mkhitaryan offering little promise in a poor display all around from the Gunners.
While Arsene Wenger’s side still progressed 4-2 on aggregate to reach the last 16, the performance of his side will have left a sour taste in the mouth of supporters ahead of a huge game this weekend, the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.
Mkhitaryan will not be able to play at Wembley as he is cup-tied, but going off these tweets some fans will be delighted with that fact.
Mkhitaryan fooled us all with his Everton display. Manchester United fans warned us about him. Disgusting performance

Mkhitaryan is the one who has to carry this team tonight and he doesn’t seem to have it in him. He’s been awful

Mkhitaryan’s crossing it shocking it’s like Walcott is still here

This was the third straight game where Mkhitaryan was really poor. Needs to step up – big time.

Mkhitaryan gives the ball away, does so well to win it back only to give it away again.

While it is still early days for Mkhitaryan at the Emirates, he will have to up his game if he wants supporters at the Emirates to warm to him.
Judging off these comments, that may take a while to happen just yet.
