    I have a soft spot for Herrera so I tend overrate him, I admit, but there is no way Fellaini, Matic or McTominay should be starting ahead of him, just no way!

    Herrera, Fred and Pogba should be the standard, Pereira should get his chances and Fellaini has his use. I don't think it takes a footballing god to figure it out.

    Should be Captain and should definitely start the big games. Can't see why we still haven't gone with him fred and pogba (tho no longer surprised)

    Because Pogba is a virus.

    Then forgetting pogba, why not try Fred Herrera + fellaini or Mata or something?
    It's odd as we need mobility in the middle but hardly play our two most mobile players together

    I'd be up for that. Hopefully Mourinho gives it a go next game .Get Martial and Rashford ahead of them, ideally with Lingard and see how we get on. If Lukaku must play start him out right coming late into the box.

    I think with Herrera and Fred in the middle of the field, we would have more mobility and ball winning players.

    Him, Jones and Rashford were the only 3 decent performers yesterday from our outfield players.

    Would be my first name on the teamsheet other than DDG. Yes, he’s technically not the best, but at least he tries and gets in the oppositions faces - should be the bare minimum from any player but the others don’t really do it.

    He's just as average as Fellaini imo just in his own Spanish way.

    He's well liked and gives everything on the pitch but to me he's a Europa league level player. Andre Gomes is a better version of Herrera and he's only good enough for Everton atm.

    Gomes and Herrera are nothing alike.

    Nah. I'd say Adebayo Akinfenwa is the better comparison.

    It was one of those games where no one deserved MOTM, but since it has to be given, I'd have given it to him

    More tackles (5), interceptions (6) and chances created (3) than anyone on the pitch, for either team.

    Bossed midfield while Matic ran around trying to locate his balls

    I thought he ran out of steam second half. He was very good in the first half though. Always gives his all but he lacks ability.

    Herrera was one of the main reasons we were able to gain a respectable result out of the game. The other being Arsenal's own incompetent defending for the 2nd equaliser

    Very good, playing far better than Matic in both ways. Should start ahead of him, but will never happen under Mourinho. One of our best players today.

    Would have had another 5 or so tackles if Guendouzi and Torreira didnt dive everytime he came near them. Man against boys

    Easily MOTM for me. When a match is so low quality, a player like Herrera with his drive really stands out. Old school performance.

    He's wasted at United. Would thrive in a pressing side that tries to win the ball in the oppos half. Klopp would love him.

    He shouldn’t just be starting, he should be captain.

    Love him. He would pretty much always start if it was up to me tbh. He's not always the most consistent guy but always gives his all, has so much energy, but also provides a lot of quality. He's class when as a holding mid IMO. Should be the main defensive mid instead of Matic.

    Our fast start, in terms of pressing, was down to him. Set the tempo.

    I really do not know why he is not made the Captain? If Ed has any sense he will order to make him the captain.

    He doesn’t start enough games, I even think he’d fit into Matic’s position.

    Would like to go back to the Herrera - Pogba midfield.

    My MOTM.

    How some people don't rate him on this forum I'll never know. He takes pride in playing for United and is our only big game player post-Fergie.
