Herrera opened the scoring at Old Trafford before linking up with Juan Mata late on to score the final goal of the afternoon.
It was a fantastic performance from the Spaniard, who is enjoying his best run of form since arriving at United last summer.
Herrera was happy to get on the scoresheet but insisted he can score more goals between now and the end of the season.
Speaking after the game, Herrera said: ”Scoring goals was one of the things that I had to improve on. I’m getting better but have to improve still.
“The battle for the top four is going to be very tough but we are on the right road. We are in very good form but have to play seven more games and have to fight a lot.”
The 25-year-old has been nothing short of fantastic since the start of the year and it seems he is now adding goals to his game.
Herrera’s form will fill fans with confidence as United close in on their goal of finishing in the top four of the Premier League. He will need to keep it up against Manchester City in United’s next game in order to nullify the threat of players such as David Silva and Yaya Toure.
