Ander Herrera put in some early media work ahead of Manchester United's EFL Cup final clash later this month

Ander Herrera was putting in some media work for Manchester United ahead of the Red Devils’ EFL Cup final clash against Southampton later this months after training on Monday.

The Red Devils midfielder helped Jose Mourinho’s men stretch their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 16 games on Saturday afternoon as United beat Watford 2-0 at Old Trafford.

That result left Mourinho’s side in sixth place in the Premier League table as they bid to break back into the top four in the Portuguese coach’s first season in charge at Old Trafford.

Manchester United will take on Southampton at Wembley in the EFL Cup final on 26 February.

And Herrera is clearly looking forward to the showpiece, as he posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Some early media ahead of our next trip to Wembley 🔴 @manchesterunited”
