Ander Herrera has earned a place in WhoScored’s Premier League Team of the Week after his performance against Swansea.
The Spaniard started and scored in his third game in succession for Manchester United and although his smartly taken goal wasn’t enough to help secure three points, it was another impressive performance.
Herrera has been in and out of Man United’s team over the last couple of months but having scored in three successive starts, Louis van Gaal will surely have been happy with how he has responded.
Competition for places in United’s side is tough and Herrera has had to fight for his opportunities but that’s exactly what he has done. Instead of being downbeat, he has been nothing but professional throughout.

Herrera has already won United’s fans over with his performances but now it is up to van Gaal as to whether he sees him as a regular start from now on.
Judging by how well he has got on and how much better United’s midfield look with Herrera in, it would be more than strange if van Gaal decided he still wasn’t good enough.
