WATCH: Henrikh Mkhitaryan Plays Outrageous Pass For Rashford Equaliser

Manchester United found themselves behind at Ewood Park, this afternoon after Danny Graham emphatically converted a clever through ball from Martin Emnes.

However, minutes later, Marcus Rashford drew Jose Mourinho's men level thanks in no small part to an outrageous assist from Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The Armenian, who spent most of the first half of his debut season at Old Trafford on the sidelines, with Mourinho deeming him not ready for the first team, has thrived in the last few months and is looking more like the player who was named the Bundesliga Player of The Season by Kicker, last season.

The former Borussia Dortmund playmaker skilfully tricked his way past one challenge before unleashing a sublime through ball to Rashford with the outside of his boot.

The 19-year-old striker expertly did the rest, rounding the goalkeeper and rolling the ball into an empty net to equalise.

It would be unfair not to include Graham's effort in this piece, though as it is fully deserving of being celebrated.


With the game so finely poised heading into the second half, could Owen Coyle's men spring the latest surprise of an upset laden competition? Or will United turn the screw in the second half and advance to the quarter-finals?
