Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will play a vital role in the next match against Feyenoord. Mourinho didn’t use the Armenian against Arsenal and revealed why.

Despite putting in a dominating performance, United only managed a 1-1 draw against Arsenal. Juan Mata’s opener was cancelled by Olivier Giroud as Arsenal kept their nerves to hold on. Mkhitaryan was supposed to play in the high voltage match but Mourinho explained that the playmaker is still not ready for this kind of pressure game. The 27-year-old is yet to play a full 90 minutes in the Premier League this season.

Mourinho said, “I told him…that he is going to be involved in the game against Feyenoord.

“He is trying. Obviously he is not happy, but he is transforming his frustration in a good way, which is to close the mouth, work hard and try to adapt.

“I told him, ‘This [Arsenal] was not the game for you’, because I don’t think he needs 10 or 20 minutes from the bench.”
