Manchester United fans were delighted with Ander Herrera‘s performance against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.
The Spaniard has been vital under Jose Mourinho this season and was able to prove his worth to the side once again against Antonio Conte’s men.
He picked up an assist in the first-half as he played a beautiful long ball into Marcus Rashford which was just out of reach of David Luiz for the opening goal of the game, and then found himself a well-deserved goal in the second-half as he rocketed Ashley Young‘s pass into the back of the net.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about Herrera’s performance.
Ander Herrera is top quality ! 👌🏻

It's amazing that Herrera can get a goal and an assist. All with hazard in his back pocket. Sensational

It was an absolute delight to watch him in action against Chelsea as he managed to get the ball forward with an assist and goal to his name while still keeping Eden Hazard quiet throughout the entire game.
Herrera is a special talent and hopes are he can keep himself fit and injury free as there’s no doubt having him in the team each week is a massive boost for Mourinho.
