A stunning performance from Roma’s Henrikh secured a 3-1 victory over at the on Sunday afternoon, to see the attacker named for Round 7.

Keen to get on the scoresheet in Liguria, the Armenian international saw a long range effort strike the crossbar early on, but went on to net a hat-trick, as the leapfrogged Juventus into fourth place in Serie A.

Somewhat surprisingly, the former Manchester United midfielder gave Il Lupi the lead by rising at a corner kick in half stoppage time, to head powerfully past Mattia Perin.

The hosts quickly regained parity through Marko shortly after the restart, but on 66 minutes Mkhitaryan burst into the box to volley home and give Roma a lead they looked unlikely to give away again.

With five minutes remaining the ex-Arsenal man found himself unmarked just inside the Genoa box and able to direct a Pedro cross past Perin with another volley, but with far greater technical proficiency.
