Henrikh Mkhitaryan believes there is a lot more to come from him at Manchester United as he is yet to fully adapt to Premier League life.

He was eased into the fold by Jose Mourinho, with some initial teething problems at Old Trafford making way for a more influential role.

Mkhitaryan has impressed after finding his feet, but the 28-year-old midfielder insists he can offer even more to the collective cause in 2017-18.

He told United Review when asked if he feels adapted to English football: "No, not yet. I still have places where I can improve and room to improve. 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."

While Mkhitaryan has played a leading role in keeping United in the hunt for a top-four finish, he did miss their EFL Cup triumph through injury and concedes he is hoping to get another opportunity to land major silverware in the Europa League.

He added: "Yes, of course, I missed the EFL Cup final but the most important thing is the fact that the team won it.

“For me, it’s the team success in the first place, more than any individual one, so I will be happy if I can get to another final this year. You don’t ever know what will happen tomorrow but we will keep our heads clear, try to think positively and get the best for us.

"It is one of my goals for this season — to win the Europa League. Of course, I know it is not going to be easy, particularly at this stage of the competition as there are no easy opponents. Obviously, we understand the importance of the tie with Anderlecht in the quarter-finals. 

"We know that we are going to have two very tough games and, of course, Anderlecht are not easy opponents. I realise some people think: ‘Ah, we’ve got Anderlecht, so it is going to be easy to beat them’ but it is not like that. I know this because I have watched some of their games during their participation in Europe and I can say they are playing very well and they have very good with players of high quality."
