Henrikh Mkhitaryan admits he must adapt further if he is to make a success of his career at Manchester United.

The Armenian endured a difficult start to life at Old Trafford after joining for £27million from Borussia Dortmund this summer with Jose Mourinho reticent to throw him in from the start for the opening months of the season.

The 28-year-old has since earned his manager's trust but recently drew his ire again following the draw with West Brom last weekend.

And Mkhitaryan admits he still has room for improvement as he bids to make himself a first-team regular for good.

"I still have places where I can improve and room to improve,” he told United Review. “I know myself very well and I am sure than I can do better, and I will do better, because I am confident.

"I know very well within myself I can do more, I want to say that, for next year, I am going to have more goals and more assists.

"Of course, you can improve in every aspect. There is not one side that you can say I am good on it and then I don't have to work on that facet.

“You have to work on every side to your game, in every aspect, because you just have to keep working hard to improve."
