Man United fans excited to see Ander Herrera against Liverpool

Manchester United face arch-rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday in the standout fixture in the Premier League this weekend, and Red Devils fans are excited to see Ander Herrera in action.

Despite being a key player under Jose Mourinho last term, the 28-year-old has only featured for 131 minutes in the top flight this season after often finding himself behind new boy Nemanja Matic and Marouane Fellaini in the central midfield pecking order.

However, with the latter picking up an injury while on international duty with Belgium and with Michael Carrick also absent, the Spaniard looks set to start against the Merseyside outfit and he could be tasked with dealing with Reds playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

Man United supporters were quick to have their say on Herrera via social media, and while some said they “can’t wait to see him”, others believe he will “keep Coutinho in his pocket”.
