Ander Herrera Receives Widespread Praise As Man United Beat Chelsea To Blow Title Race Wide Open

Manchester United breathed fresh life into the Premier League title race with a 2-0 win against leaders Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Eyebrows were raised when the teamsheet revealed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were on the bench, with Ashley Young captaining the side.

Nonetheless, a brilliant display from Man United, coupled with a disjointed display from the visitors, gave Jose Mourinho’s side a vital three points as they look to keep the pressure on Liverpool and Manchester City in the top four positions.

Indeed, Ander Herrera’s display in the Man United midfield drew widespread praise from just about everyone after the win. The Spanish international’s priority was to keep Eden Hazard, which he managed to do far better that his sending-off in the recent FA Cup match between these two sides, but went above and beyond with a brilliant assist for Marcus Rashford’s opener before getting on the scoresheet himself in the second half.
