Chris Waddle delivers verdict on Ander Herrera’s display in Man United v Man City

Chris Waddle was very impressed by Ander Herrera's performance for Manchester United on Wednesday

Chris Waddle singled out Ander Herrera as his pick for man of the match after the Spaniard helped Manchester United claim a 1-0 win over Manchester City to reach the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.

The midfielder continued his resurgence as he produced another impressive display for Jose Mourinho’s men to help the Red Devils through to the next round.

Herrera seems to have been given a new lease of life under under manager Mourinho this season and has earned plenty of praise for his performances in recent weeks.

And Waddle claimed that the Spaniard was United’s best player of their derby victory on Wednesday night.

Speaking on BBC Radio Five Live, Waddle said: “Herrera has been the best player on the park.”
