The Spaniard covered almost every blade of grass and dominated the middle of the park at Old Trafford during the first period.
His performance was nothing short of fantastic and he capped it off by scoring Man United’s opening goal.
They say stats don’t lie and Herrera’s numbers during the first half tell their own story:

United paid a lot of money to take Herrera to United from Athletic Bilbao last summer but he has been worth every penny.
Louis van Gaal took the strange decision to leave him out of the starting XI early on in the campaign but he has now made himself the first name on the teamsheet.
As United head into the Champions League, it will be interesting to see how Herrera deals with the world’s best. However, fans will have every confidence if he continues to play like he did against the Gunners.
