Henrikh Mkhitaryan tweets Hummels after winning Man Utd Goal of the Month again

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has a real knack for scoring special goals at Manchester United.

Quite incredibly, the former Borussia Dortmund playmaker has won the club's Goal of the Month award for the fourth time in five months.

His remarkable run started in December, when he scored a scorpion kick against Sunderland on Boxing Day to earn 79% of the vote amongst fans.

Individual efforts against Wigan and Leicester City in January and February respectively then saw Mkhitaryan scoop the award again, making it a hat-trick.

And yesterday, United's official Twitter account announced he had won Goal of the Month yet again for his low drive during April's 3-0 win away to Sunderland.

A few fans have argued that Marcus Rashford's winner against Anderlecht in the Europa League - which received 17% of votes - deserved to win, but who are we to deny Mkhitaryan.

He's proved a decent signing for Jose Mourinho at £26 million and there's a sense that the best is still to come as he adapts to the Premier League.

Mats Hummels has certainly noticed how well his former teammate is doing at United after he tweeted him for winning a third successive Goal of the Month award in February.

Upon the announcement, Hummels tweeted Mkhitaryan: "Come on, it's like the 8th time you win this. Do they even nominate other players or do you just decide which goal you want to win with?"

To which Mkhitaryan replied: "Hahaha, it's football, so it's always competitive, Mats. But a little #MickiMagic always helps... Thank you my friend!"

Another reaction was expected from Hummels when Mkhitaryan won the award for a fourth time, but it was United who struck first.

In the tweet below, United linked Hummels a video of Mkhitaryan's goal against Sunderland and cheekily said: @MatsHummels well this is awkward 😬."

Hummels hasn't responded yet, but now Mkhitaryan has tweeted the Bayern Munich centre-back, almost rubbing it in his face.

The 28-year-old wrote: "Here we come @matshummels! Another one ⚽️ A big thank you to @ManUtd fans 🙌."

Over to you, Mats. United fans will only hope Mkhitaryan kicks on next season and starts delivering on a more regular basis.

He's shown glimpses of his talent since arriving last summer, having scored 10 goals in all competitions for the Red Devils but only assisted one.
