Manchester United fans disappointed with Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera performances

Manchester United fans were terribly disappointed with Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic’s performances vs Manchester City this evening.

The midfield duo couldn’t seem to have any kind of positive influence in the crucial clash that leaves Jose Mourinho’s men 12 points away from top spot.

Matic has been heavily criticised by supporters for numerous games now who believe he is clearly suffering from fatigue.

Herrera meanwhile was just heralded mid-week against Juventus but put in a terrible shift against the Citizens with fans confused as to why that was the case.

United’s inability to keep any control in midfield led to the rest of their game-plan falling apart as they lost 3-1 at the Etihad.

Marouane Fellaini completed the set in midfield and was arguably the best out of all three players though he faded towards the end of the match.

Ander seemingly struggled to effectively man-mark David Silva and was also incredibly sloppy in possession to make matters worse.

Nemanja consistently lost his man and offered little protection to a shaky defence that has conceded far too often this season.

Paul Pogba’s absence was clearly felt but the question has to be asked as to why Fred didn’t feature as he was the major signing made over the summer.
