Henrikh Mkhitaryan is returning slowly on the levels seen in the last season. The Armenian has shone particularly in the last two games, also giving important flower to his fantasy coaches. The change, especially in performance, is clear, that’s why.
Fantasy football: is Mkhitaryan back?
It was enough to move it more to the center and Henrik Mkhitaryan seems to be back as if by magic that of last season. That a tactical reason was hiding behind his involution was evident and after the last two games with Genoa and Turin it is even more evident. In this unprecedented 3-4-1-2 / 3-4-2-1 Mkhitaryan, also thanks to the absence of several midfielders, had the possibility of being able to act in a more central position, at times even as a midfielder.
The difference is not the advanced position in his case, but the centrality in the game, the possibility of touching many balls and then being able to decide from the trocar onwards with winning cues and interesting ideas, as in the occasion of Gyan’s first goal with the Genoa and Abraham’s network with Torino. For him 2 assists in 2 games, two 8 on the report card that undoubtedly help a last fantasy of 6.81 not exactly exciting for someone like him.
In total, the Armenian has collected 2 goals and 4 assists, but the feeling is that he is ready to return to his levels. The former Manchester United will probably also take advantage of the absence of Lorenzo Pellegrini, the best in the Giallorossi ranks in this start of the season: without him Mkhitaryan will act centrally. Could this be the beginning of a great period at Fantasy Football?
