Man United were sound defensively against their ‘noisy neighbours’ but never really got going in an attacking sense.
Herrera himself was subdued during the game as he fulfilled a lot more defensive duties than usual.
The Spaniard was pleased to earn a point in what was a “tough derby”:

Both teams seemed to cancel each other out during the match but United certainly had the better of the chances.
Louis van Gaal’s side will be disappointed not to have won all three points but there will be no time to dwell on the result as United prepare to face Middlesbrough in the Capital One Cup next week.
