Cape Town - Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan says he is excited about his future with the club after receiving a standing ovation upon being substituted on Wednesday evening.

Mkhitaryan produced a man of the match display against West Ham to set up a semi-final EFL Cup tie with Hull City and he was given a wonderful reception by the Old Trafford faithful when Marcus Rashford replaced him.

The Armenian's passing ability, technical proficiency and movement off the ball were highlighted to good effect as he allowed the likes of Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic play with more freedom up front.

"I'm excited for the performance, I'm excited for my performance," Mkhitaryan told United's official website. "We've done a good job. We've tried our best to win because the last game, on Sunday against West Ham, wasn't very good for us when we didn't win.

"The last game we couldn't score our chances, but now we've scored our chances so the difference is that," he said in reference to the 1-1 draw in the league fixture against West Ham on Sunday.

"This time we've done maybe more than what we have to do and we've scored four goals.

"Maybe we could score more but in the end we stopped on four goals and I think we've done a very good game and the transition from defence to offence was great. We have to keep working to be ready for the next game against Everton."
