Ander Herrera has been named in WhoScored’s European Team of the Month alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Lionel Messi.
The Spanish midfielder enjoyed a fantastic September with two goals and two assists in three matches but what earned him a nomination for United’s Player of the Month, as well as a place in WhoScored’s team, was his all-round performances.
There was no section of United’s play that Herrera was not involved with in some capacity throughout the month.
He would happily get stuck in with a tackle like he did to help Radamel Falcao set-up Robin van Persie’s goal against West Ham but equally so, he was comfortable attacking just like he was against Leicester City when he scored United’s third.
Herrera matched his eagerness to be involved with a great engine and dynamism that saw him cover a lot of ground and he brought fantastic energy into United’s midfield, so his place in WhoScored’s Team of the Month is richly deserved.
