Cape Town - Henrikh Mkhitaryan is determined to fight for his place in Jose Mourinho's side after an underwhelming start to his career at Manchester United.
Much was expected of the Armenia international after he made the switch from Borussia Dortmund on a four-year deal during the off-season.
But Mkhitaryan hasn't featured for the Red Devils since making his first start in the Premier League against Manchester City on September 10, when he was withdrawn at half-time in the 2-1 derby defeat.
The 27-year-old playmaker, though, is not giving up hope just yet and will continue to work hard in training to prove to United boss Mourinho he is worthy of a spot in the first team.
"It doesn't matter if they buy me for, I don't know, £38m or £40m, I am not guaranteed to play the games," he told the Guardian.
"So I am trying to do my best during the training to earn this place to play and then we will see, because I don't think I will play every game, depending on the tactical situation, depending on the opponent.
"But I will do everything to try and help the team."
Burnley travels to Old Trafford this weekend as United hope to climb the Premier League table.
Kick-off is at 16:00.
