Henrikh Mkhitaryan got a thigh injury in the Derby della Madonnina and could not continue the game. Inter have now confirmed after medical tests that he has a thigh injury to his left thigh and will be out for a few games. Only five games are left this season for the Nerazzurri, but they could define the season for Inter. They have to cement their place in the top four and have to prepare for Coppa Italia and Champions League finals.
Mkhitaryan had to go off against Milan after his thigh injury in the first half. The Armenian tried to continue but was soon down again, and Brozovic replaced him. It worked in Inter’s favor as the Croatian midfielder slowed the tempo of the game. While, Calhanoglu had more freedom to move into advanced positions. However, Inter will hope Mkhitaryan recovers soon as they would need him for the Coppa Italia and Champions League final.
Mkhitaryan got a thigh injury and will be out for a few games
The Nerazzurri face the Scudetto winner Napoli on the weekend, and Mkhitaryan will miss this game. However, the former Roma midfielder has settled well into Inzaghi’s system in his first season. He has excelled in the number 8 role and has helped Inzaghi to keep the midfield fresh. Also, his contribution to big games has helped Inter to get into the finals. He scored a brilliant goal against Milan in the first leg. He made a surging run through the Rossoneri defense and had brilliant first touch to make it 2-0.
Mkhitaryan has muscle strain to the anterior rectus of his left thigh, and he will be under observation as Inter want him back soon. The former Roma midfielder has played 11 out of 12 games in the Champions League, and Inter will need him for the all-important final. He has provided five goals and two assists this season.
