​Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan could break a Europa League record for the Red Devils when they face Celta Vigo on Thursday evening.

Mkhitaryan will be the first ever United player to score in five consecutive European away games, if he scores during the semi-final clash.

The Armenian winger scored in the 2-0 group stage victory over Zorya, he also scored in the knockout stages against Saint-Etienne, Rostov and Anderlecht.

United boss Jose Mourinho will be edging more towards the Europa League in search of Champions League qualification after a disappointing draw against Swansea at the weekend left them a lot do in beating Manchester City and Liverpool to fourth spot and Champions League football next season.

United face Arsenal on Sunday in the Premier League and the team that Mourinho names for that game will surely outline his intentions for the remainder of the season.

Either way, the Portuguese man will be hoping for a place in the final of the Europa League and Mkhitaryan breaking the record will certainly help his cause.
