Herrera linked up with Mata brilliantly throughout the entire afternoon and eventually scored the crucial opening goal just before half time.
The 25-year-old grabbed his second in the dying moments of the game as United secured a 3-1 victory at Old Trafford.
Both players were over the moon with the result and took to Twitter to reveal their excitement following the game:
The Spaniards have developed a bromance over the course of the campaign along with compatriot David de Gea.
In a recent Q+A, Mata was asked who his favourite player at United is. His reply? “David Herrera.” It’s great to see the players establishing such a tight bond at the club, which will only help things as they continue their assault on the top four of the Premier League.
