Ander Herrera has opened up on his team’s win against Chelsea in the FA Cup round of 16.
The Red Devils have not been able to get the better of Chelsea in recent cup competitions and the last time they won against the Blues in a cup competition was back in 2010-11. However, their long hoodoo was undone in 2019 as Chelsea face the terror of the Sarri reign.
Credit though must not be taken away from Manchester United, who themselves have come a long way since the departure of Jose Mourinho and look a rejuvenated side under their new boss OLe Gunnar Solskjaer.
Herrera, was one of the goal scorers on the night and has become a key figure in the Ole regime at Old Trafford. This is what he had to say.
“They have a fantastic team. We had to fight until the end. We knew how to play them. I played today a more offensive role because we knew they struggle in that side of the pitch. But I think fantastic game. When you play with these kind of players you can make that type of run and you know you’re going to get the ball.”
