Jose Mourinho has finally given a start to Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who takes Marcus Rashford’s place as Manchester United face Southampton.
Manchester United fans will be ecstatic to see Henrikh Mkhitaryan return to the starting lineup. But, Marcus Rashford is the one to give way for the Armenian, with Jesse Lingard an automatic selection with his recent displays.

It seems Mourinho is intent on providing some holiday cheer for United fans, starting Luke Shaw as well, with Ashley Young on the other side and Victor Lindelof returning to his preferred role as centre-back.
