Manchester United midfielder excited for derby day, but will he start?

Preparations for the Manchester derby are well underway, with Jose Mourinho hoping to get one over on an old rival in Pep Guardiola. Both red and blue halves of Manchester have a 100% winning record in their opening three league games, and this one is going to be special for both sets of fans.

The players are clearly looking forward towards the big game as well, and the latest to take to social media to express his excitement is midfielder Ander Herrera.

Check out Ander Herrera’s tweet here:

It’s great to see how excited he is for one of the biggest matches on the footballing calendar. Ander Herrera has always shown his passion and that is one of his biggest selling points.

However, at this point in time I just cannot see him starting the game unless Jose Mourinho decides to switch the formation up to pack the midfield. Paul Pogba will obviously take up one midfield spot, and with Marouane Fellaini expected to be fit, then that’s two. It would be criminal to drop the big Belgian, based on current form.
