"It was a great win,” said Mkhitaryan, who provided two assists.

“I think we did a good start to the season. Now we have to keep going the same way.”

The United man, laid a few praises on his Serbian teammate Namanja Matic and also admitted surprise that the Premier League champions gave him away to their League rivals.

"Actually I am [surprised]," added the 28-year-old.

"But at the same time I am very happy that we have got him.

"It was not only Matic. I want to mention as well the other two new signings, [Victor] Lindelof and Lukaku. They are very good players. They are, I think, Manchester United players.

"Matic does a big job on the pitch. He tries to recover all the balls. He defensively does a big job. Lukaku scored his goals and Lindelof is still going to have time to show himself.”
