Man Utd midfielder Mkhitaryan: I need to improve to become Jose regular

Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan feels a lot more comfortable in his second season in England, but he understands he must keep improving if he wants a regular place in Jose Mourinho's side.

The Armenian has started all six Premier League games this season, bagging one and five assists.

Contrastingly, Mkhitaryan struggled to adapt to the rigours of English football last season, but the 28-year-old credits his slow start to injuries.

"I can say last season I started not good as I had lots of injuries and I didn't feel good playing games," Mkhitaryan said.

"But this season is different because I started playing well and the connection and understanding with other players, especially [Romelu] Lukaku, is great and I hope we can score many goals in the coming games.

"I've worked very hard to get a place in the Premier League games and I must continue to train hard to convince the manager he can trust me to play Premier League games.

"I know there is no limit to the work I can do and I just want to provide as many assists and goals as I can."
