Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has hailed Saturday’s victory over Aston Villa as a ‘great day’ after he scored twice in a match for the first time in his professional career, reports ManUtd.com.
The second half was a quieter affair until the final 15 minutes, which saw a flurry of goals. The first saw Wayne Rooney make it 2-0 with a superb hooked shot into the top corner after controlling expertly on the edge of the penalty area.
Villa pulled one back within moments through Christian Benteke following a corner, but the three points were sealed by United as a Fabian Delph mistake allowed them to manoeuvre their way into a scoring position and Herrera confidently side-footed the ball past Guzan.
Reflecting on his performance, the Spaniard said: “It was a great day, one of the best in my professional career. It’s the first time I have scored twice in my professional career, so of course I am very happy.
“It is not finished, we have to fight, there are still seven more games and the next one is a derby. It’s very important for us, very important for our supporters as well. Now, I think we’re on the right road, we’re in good form, in a good moment and we are ready for the derby.’
