How Mkhitaryan can make United history
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is in a position to achieve history for Manchester United when the Reds play in Spain on Thursday night. The fans' favourite has already become the first United player to score in four successive away games in Europe - at the expense of Zorya Luhansk, Saint-Etienne, Rostov and Anderlecht - and he can break further new ground if he finds the net against Celta Vigo in the Europa League semi-final first leg. Should the Armenian strike at Estadio de Balaídos, he'll be the only star in the club's history to have scored in five different games on the road within a single European campaign. David Herd netted on four trips during United's 1964/65 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup run - namely Djurgardens, Borussia Dortmund, Everton and Strasbourg. Herd also claimed a double in the home leg of the semi-final with Ferencvaros but did not score in two games in Hungary - neither the second leg or the resulting play-off match against the eventual winners. Dwight Yorke was on the mark in Champions League away fixtures at Bayern Munich, Brondby, Barcelona and Juventus during the Treble season of 1998/99, and Ruud van Nistelrooy matched him by scoring in a quartet of games in the same competition in 2002/03, on visits to Bayer Leverkusen, Basel, Juventus and Real Madrid.
