Herrera looking to bounce back from Southampton defeat

by Richard Laverty

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera is ready to bounce back from disappointment against Southampton on Sunday.

Herrera and his team mates go to QPR this weekend with a poor away record against a side annoyingly good at home but the Spaniard is focusing solely on taking all three points away from Loftus Road.

The midfielder didn’t start against Southampton, a disappointment to fans and probably the player given he was the best player on the pitch against Yeovil and scored a wonderful opener.

Fans already have quite a soft spot for the classy midfielder given he is the type of player United lacked for so many years but would have expected to see more of him this season.

Given he had no problem slotting straight into United’s team on pre-season and the opening months of the season, a rib injury allowed both Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini to hit form and Herrera has since struggled to establish himself back in the first eleven.

Herrera scored in back-to-back games from midfield against QPR and Leicester but the return of Daley Blind on Sunday has made matters more complicated for him.

It does though give United many options in midfield with Angel Di Maria’s return to action but Herrera and the fans will certainly hope to see the 25-year-old in the starting line-up.
