Mkhitaryan was in the right place at the right time to give Roma a precious victory away to Sampdoria, consolidating further on the fifth position.
The Giallorossi are now unbeaten in 10 Serie A games, they used the same XI that crushed Lazio 3-0 in the Derby della Capitale, although this time Nicolò Zaniolo was injured rather than dropped, joining Leonardo Spinazzola and Jordan Veretout on the absentee list, while Sampdoria missed Sebastian Giovinco, Manolo Gabbiadini and Mikkel Damsgaard, with Albin Ekdal not fully fit either.
Mourinho had never won or even scored a goal at Marassi, so this was a first for the former Inter Milan coach.
