Red Devils entertain Hammers at Theater of dreams

Manchester United entertained Westham United at Theater of Dreams, Old Trafford, with a 4-1 win.

Goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial saw United seal a crucial win, barely a week after drawing with the same team in English Premier League fixture.

Mkhitaryan was handed just his third start for the club as Jose Mourinho made five changes to the side that were held to a 1-1 draw by the same opposition in the Premier League on Sunday.Braces from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial sent Jose Mourinho’s side through to the final four, with the Frenchman staking claim to an incredible record after his haul for the Red Devils in last night’s match.

No Manchester United player has scored more goals for the club that Anthony Martial since the French international made his debut a year ago, with Martial outscoring the likes of Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford.

On the other hand, Antoni Valencia looks rejuvenated under the new boss.

The Ecuador international has established himself as the first-choice right-back under the new manager and is now one of the most important players in the squad.

Producing a master class attack, defensive, and the much-needed speed in attacking, Valencia looks like one was has just been on holiday, and his back to show fans his worth.

And with Jose Mourinho out of sight as he served his one-match touchline ban, the big-money summer signing from Borussia Dortmund caught the eye with an impressive performance.He assisted United’s first two goals and starred throughout before going off to rapturous applause from the Old Trafford faithful when he was replaced by Marcus Rashford late on.

“I’m excited for the performance, I’m excited for my performance,” Mkhitaryan told MUTV.

“We’ve done a good job. We’ve tried our best to win because the last game, on Sunday against West Ham, wasn’t very good for us when we didn’t win.

“But I think this time everything worked out and we’re very pleased.”

“This time we’ve done maybe more than what we have to do and we’ve scored four goals.

“Maybe we could score more but in the end we stopped on four goals and I think we’ve done a very good game and the transition from defence to offence was great.

“We have to keep working to be ready for the next game against Everton.”
