Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored for AS Roma against SPAL over the weekend, his second goal since returning from injury.
Mkhitaryan started his loan spell in Serie A pretty well, back in September. The winger scored once and assisted once in four appearances (three starts) before falling injured against Lecce.
Unfortunately, the 30-year-old missed almost the entirety of October and November as a result, only making his league comeback at the start of this month.
It appears the Arsenal loanee is picking up where he left off though, scoring two goals in three league games. Funnily enough, the only match he started was the only one of the three he didn’t get a goal in.
Against SPAL on Sunday, Mkhitaryan only took four minutes to get on the scoresheet in another substitute appearance. He came on in the 79th minute, and by the 83rd he had a tap-in.
You can watch the goal from 3:25 in the below video:
Mkhitaryan really should have had two on the night, missing another big chance. At least the chances are falling to him though, even in such a brief spell on the pitch.
Obviously, everyone benefits from Mkhitaryan finding form. Arsenal can sell him on for a profit, Roma will actually want to buy him and he’ll get regular football. He just needs to keep it up and stay fit for the rest of the season.
