Marcus Rashford, Marcos Rojo and Ander Herrera named in BBC Team of the Week

by Leo Nieboer

Marcus Rashford, Marcos Rojo and Ander Herrera have all claimed a place in Garth Crooks’ BBC ‘Team of the Week’ following Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday.

The 19-year-old opened the scoring after latching onto Herrera’s sublime pass to stroke past Asmir Begovic with just seven minutes to go.

Herrera then took a quick break from his superb man-marking job on Eden Hazard to power home Man United’s second of the afternoon.

And the pair, alongside Rojo, who completely nullified Diego Costa all afternoon, duly received a place in Crooks’ ‘Team of the Week’

It almost feels unfair to pick out particular players when it comes to dishing out praise for yesterday’s display; this was, after all, a textbook team performance – Rashford and Herrera made the headlines, of course, but none of it would have been possible without the collective graft of every single member of the side.

Players like Matteo Darmian, Ashley Young and Marouane Fellaini didn’t receive much airtime in the aftermath but their overall attitude helped to set the tempo for what was a fantastic collective triumph over the league leaders.
