Picture: Manchester United star named in WhoScored’s Team of the Week

Another weekend of football is in the books as we approach the end of the 2016/17 campaign. Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side have been ever-improving, and that culminated in what felt like our best result of the season coming against Chelsea.

The Red Devils won 2-0 in a supremely convincing manner, and we absolutely played the current league-leaders off the park. Tactically our boss got it spot on and every single player out in our famous red jersey put in an almost-perfect display.

However, one man in particular really stood out; Ander Herrera. The Spaniard was absolutely everywhere. He didn’t give Eden Hazard a moment’s peace on the defensive side of things, and going forward he was outstanding, picking up a goal and an assist.

That display has duly been rewarded with a spot in WhoScored’s Premier League Team of the Week, with a 9.1 rating which is the top score in the team as a whole.

Have a look at the Team of the Week here:

We’ve seen some brilliant individual performances from United players down the years, but my that was something special from Herrera. It was just the complete game for a box-to-box midfielder and he more than deserves a huge amount of credit.

At this point in time, you’d have to say that he is one of the first names on the teamsheet as he has been so consistent for us all season. He’s turned into a player that Mourinho can rely upon and the fans absolutely adore him, too.
