Ander Herrera continues to impress for Manchester United

by Richard Laverty

Ander Herrera scored his second goal in a week for Manchester United and it looked to put them on the way to another victory against Swansea City.

After his crucial goal that drew United level against Preston on Monday, Herrera fired his side in front in Wales but the team ended up with nothing.

It was Herrera’s first league start since the beginning of December and fans were instantly impressed with the fluidity he added to the team’s overall play.

But Louis van Gaal has regularly picked Wayne Rooney over him due to issues over balance and despite a good performance, defeat may have van Gaal wondering whether or not he needs to return Rooney back to midfield.



Despite his goal threat from midfield and talent on the ball, Herrera’s inclusion in the side tends to throw up more questions than answers for van Gaal right now.

Whilst it would be ludicrous to pin the defeat on the Spaniard, van Gaal needs to assess whether he offers as much defensive protection to Daley Blind as Rooney does and go back to a solid first approach.
