Ander Herrera sets new record for interceptions in the Premier League this season

Man U midfielder Ander Herrera was in fantastic form against Liverpool on Monday night that ended a draw less and set a new record for the current Premier League season.

The central midfielder, who was recently called up to the Spain squad, started the season out of Jose Mourinho’s plans, but has become a vital cog in the middle of the park in recent weeks.

The 27-year-old 2014 signing from Athletic Bilbao has built up a strong partnership alongside Marouane Fellaini and Paul Pogba, which was evident on Monday night at Anfield.

Herrera covered every blade of grass and his ability to nip the ball where it mattered most was evident, after Herrera completed 11 interceptions – more than any other player has managed in a single league game this season.

Herrera, who was chosen as Man of the Match against Jurgen Klopp’s side, was criticised at times last season under the stewardship of Louis van Gaal, but finally seems like the player Manchester United fans have waited for.
