Thought he was very good tonight. Only Northampton but attitude was spot on and that was needed after 3 defeats in a row and talks of disharmony already.

For me he should be playing every week. All over the pitch, winning balls back and we know hes not afraid to shoot.

Premier League: Manchester United 4-1 Leicester City - 24th September 2016

Exactly what I wanted to see from him today. Always shown that he's a good player but provided more than just that today. Showed his importance in this team. Turns defence to attack quicker than anyone else we have. Excellent performance.

Mourinho: "But he (Pogba) and Ander in midfield were a good complement. Ander is a kid who brings intensity under pressure. From a defensive point of view it was important to have fast players on the pitch to recover a team that is very direct in their counter attack with lots of long balls and people arriving from behind. We changed our team to play against Leicester and the specific qualities they have. I like Ander that is why I think I have used him every match. Sometimes he starts, sometimes he is on the bench. He is a player I always liked when we were in Spain together in La Liga. I know him very very well. So the fact last season was not a happy season for him doesn't mean I don't like him. I like him a lot."

6 interceptions by Herrera today. Carrick at his peak would have been delighted with that.

Mourinho seems to have found an effective way to use him and he seems to be reveling in his new role. His work rate was excellent yesterday.

Best performance i've seen from a United player in some time. Remember lots doubting whether he could play that deeper role in the big games, doubts that he was good enough defensively, proved them wrong last night. He can be Mourinho's main man at United. Showed captaincy material during the game and after in his interview, spoke really well.

Very good. His pressing was excellent and provided an attacking impetuous in the attacking third.

Tight call at the minute between him and Valencia for our player of the year. Becoming our most important player, would like to see more goals from him though I think.

Man oh man that pass to Mkhitaryan was a thing of beauty! He's definitely making himself a key part of this team!

I thought he was the best of a bad bunch in midfield. Two passes aside his quality and what he did with the ball was poor.

It will be an unpopular opinion, but I think we can do better and would like an upgrade in the summer.

Europa League: Manchester United 3-0 St Etienne - 16th February 2017

He was all over the place in the first half. Not convinced he can develop into a holding midfielder in a 4-3-3 if that's Mourinho's thinking.

2 of the softest yellow cards you will ever see in football. Absolutely disgraceful refereeing.

Totally agree. I dont think either were worth a yellow. Not even convinced the first one was a foul. Ander didnt change his stride pattern or pace to get in hazards way.

The second one was silly on Herrera's part imediately after the referee had a word with the captain about fouls.

You can see why the ref gave the first yellow but it was stupid nonetheless. What did he expect Herrera to do? Become invisible to let Hazard past, he didn't change his body position of lean into Hazatd. A bit of common sense was needed in that respect.

The second one was so soft, the referee would have booked anyone for anything after his little talking too to the players. The ref's whole performance was a little iffy to be fair.

We have been at wrong end of refs poor decisions far too often this season. Something needs to be done about it.

There's his best pass again. He did a great job on Hazard.

I can't think of a better individual performance in recent years.
Mata at Anfield is the one that stands out to me

Herrera was excellent today but today was a team performance everyone was a 7/10 or better more of them 8/10 or above

Absolutely loved his game yesterday. Knew he had that performance in him need to see it more regularly. He's fast becoming my favourite player. Love his attitude. Got that nasty side to him also

Perfectly weighted pass for Martial's goal.

Excellent pass that. It was perfectly weighted too. He has been excellent this season and his contract situation needs addressing.

Not sure his contract is an issue as I think there was an automatic 1 year option on the 4 year deal he signed in 2014 so he's got 2 years to run not 1 but I think the club would be wise to tie him down long term now he's fully established in the first team and entering the peak years of his career at 27 years old.

Few headlines last week that the club were preparing a new deal for him so assuming he's happy should be relatively easy to get him sorted out.

Poor to turn his back on Xhaka's effort.
