Man United fans delighted with Ander Herrera’s impressive run of form

by Richard Laverty

Ander Herrera continued his excellent form with his first brace for Manchester United against Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Spaniard’s double took him to five for the season in the Premier League and ensured United moved eight points clear of Liverpool in the race for top four.

Herrera came into the game in top form having starred since returning to the starting line-up in February, providing the excellent pass for Juan Mata‘s opener at Anfield two weeks ago.

His first was a great effort after Daley Blind had picked him out just before the break and he finished the game off in stoppage time after good work from Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata.

Despite the arrivals of Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria last summer, Herrera is certainly ensuring he is the most popular of the summer signings among United supporters.

The two strikes took Herrera to seven for the season overall including his excellent effort in the FA Cup at Yeovil back in January.

It appears now almost unbelievable that Herrera was stuck on the bench for so long whilst United stuttered at Christmas and it may be the one decision Louis van Gaal regrets within his own mind.
