Mourinho’s plea

Henrikh Mkhitaryan will prove his worth at Manchester United once he adapts to the rigours of English football, according to his manager Jose Mourinho.

Having joined United from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, the Armenian made his solitary league start in the Manchester derby defeat last month but looked off the pace and was substituted at half-time.

Injuries have also hampered the progress of the 27-year-old, who was expected to challenge the likes of Juan Mata for a spot in the starting line-up.
