Although it should have been ruled out for offside, few could deny the sheer brilliance of Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s stupendous scorpion kick goal against Sunderland for some Boxing Day magic.
The Armenia international converted late on as Manchester United downed Sunderland 3-1 at Old Trafford to close the gap on those above them in the race for a top-four Premier League finish.
And Twitter went into a frenzy after witnessing Mkhitaryan’s special strike which capped off yet another impressive performance from the attacking midfielder of late.
Here, Goal has taken a look at some of the reaction…
