Mkhitaryan made his Inter debut in the 2-1 win at Lecce after joining from Serie A rival Roma.

The former Borussia Dortmund, Manchester United and Arsenal midfielder came on in the 57th minute of a game that saw Inter claim a last-gasp winner through Denzel Dumfries.

However, Inter could well be without his services for its home game with Spezia on Sunday (AEST) after an early injury blow.

A statement on Inter's website said assessments on Mkhitaryan had revealed a "strain in the left thigh flexors" and he will be "reassessed in the coming days".
