Ander Herrera either has the staunch support of Manchester United fans, or he is in the doghouse.
The midfielder has had to settle for a bit-part role under manager Jose Mourinho this season.
In total, the Spaniard has made 38 appearances, including 13 starts in the Premier League.
On Saturday in the FA Cup final at Wembley, Herrera was tasked by Mourinho to keep a close eye on Chelsea star Eden Hazard.
The 28-year-old tried to mark the Belgian out of the game, but he was unsuccessful as the playmaker impressed and even scored the only goal of the game.
Phil Jones made a defensive error by bringing down Hazard in the penalty box during the first half, and the Chelsea star converted to give the Blues’ a 1-0 win.
A handful of United players came under fire on Twitter after the final whistle, and unfortunately for Herrera, he was one of them.
Some criticised the midfielder’s ability, while others hit out at the role he was given to play.
Need fullbacks that genuinely attack, Herrera is not good enough only offers sideways passing, and for the love of god get Smalling and Jones out of my club #mufc

Herrera marking hazard worked the first time but Chelsea were well prepared for that this. It nullified Herrera if anything as he showed v spurs he can get forward if he is allowed to. #mufc

Can I just point out how pathetic Herrera was. Was absolutely awfully slow with the ball. #mufc

Lmaoooo this flop does well one game a season and fans make him out to be some roy Keane type of leader. You know the clubs a mess if we’re calling bums like Herrera a leader. Disgraceful #mufc https://t.co/9XS2bCYCPr

Honestly players that I wouldn't care if they never played for #mufc again
Almost put Rashford on the list too but changed my mind.
Lingard isn't far away,but he has gone up in my estimation this season.

Today felt like the end for Herrera. I like the lad, but he simply isn’t good enough. He was given the job of nullifying Hazard, who dominated the game and won it for Chelsea. Herrera is neither an attacking, defensive nor holding midfielder. What exactly is he for? #MUFC pic.twitter.com/DVYcDDk391

Unpopular opinion: Both Juan Mata and Ander Herrera should sold. Ander Herrera is not on the level we will be demanding from our midfielders next season if we must be a force to reckon with in England and in Europe. #MUFC.
