Manchester United attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is determined to give his all this season as he aims to impress manager Jose Mourinho.

The Armenian joined Mourinho's charges in July last year and made a slow start to his spell at Old Trafford, playing in only seven of the first 15 Premier League games.

However, the former Dortmund star established himself as a regular starter towards the end of the campaign and is looking forward to making an impact this season.

"I'm always trying to help the team to achieve their dreams, I'm always trying to help the team score goals and to assist because it is very important, that's what we are playing for," he told Sky Sports News.

"Of course, there will be games where you are not able to do this but you have to try to help the team and your team-mates to do that for you.

"He [Mourinho] always tries to find the best for the player and he is always looking to the players if they are working very hard and that's what I am doing. I am working hard, I'm doing my best to show him that I am ready to play."
