Manchester United fans react on Twitter to Herrera's performance against Hull

Manchester United fans couldn't hide their delight with Ander Herrera's display against Hull City.

Manchester United clinched another home win today, this time seeing off Hull City in a convincing 3-0 victory at Old Trafford.

Goals from Chris Smalling, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie handed Louis van Gaal's side a comfortable win, taking them to within two points of their fierce rivals Manchester City.

The game did see star midfielder Angel Di Maria taken off injured after just 14 minutes, but in his place came Spaniard Ander Herrera.

Herrera has recently been tentatively linked with a move to Bayern Munich, but made his presence felt against Hull, impressing fans with his passing and movement in midfield.

In fact, the former Athletic Bilbao star even earned the man of the match award, and fans on Twitter were vocal in their praise of the 25-year-old.

Having been out of the picture in recent weeks, fans were desperate for van Gaal to include him in upcoming games, making him indispensable based upon his display against Hull.
