Chelsea duo were nearer to the ball but it still made it to Rashford – Aerial view of Ander Herrera’s assist for Man Utd’s 1st goal


Ander Herrera has been receiving rave reviews ever since his impression of Eden Hazard’s shadow led to the Belgian being marked out of the game and was a crucial factor in Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Chelsea.

That it did, amongst other things, tells everyone just how much Herrera deserved his man of the match award. Check out the picture that tells a thousand words below:
