Henrikh Mkhitaryan Left Out Of Man United Squad To Play Stoke

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been left out of the Manchester United squad for the visit of Stoke City tonight, with Jose Mourinho admitting his absence isn't a tactical decision.

The Armenian's future has been called into question of late, with talk that he could be involved in a deal that would see Alexis Sanchez head to United.

And the speculation has only grown with the news that he is not involved tonight despite being fit for selection for the game at Old Trafford.

Mourinho was honest in his pre-match interview, with his comments indicating that Mkhitaryan has played his final game for United.

"I would lie if I said it was a pure tactical decision,' Mourinho said to Sky Sports.

"It was just a choice of the players that we know, in this moment, they have 100 per cent their heads in Manchester United.

"No doubts about the future. I don't think it's easy for a player to play when there are doubts about his future. It's added pressure that a player doesn't need, so I think it's the best for him and for us, while the doubt is in the air, to protect him."

Here's how social media reacted to the news:


Is a transfer imminent?
