Ander Herrera v Arsenal

Murphy hails Rashford and Herrera performances against Arsenal

Danny Murphy has hailed the performances of Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera in their side’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Wednesday night.

Arsenal twice took the lead through Shkodran Mustafi and Alexandre Lacazette at Old Trafford, with Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard responding for the hosts.

Speaking to BBC’s MOTD after the game, former Liverpool and Fulham midfielder Murphy was full of praise for the performances of Manchester United duo Rashford and Herrera.

He said: “[Marcus] Rashford set the tone at the front, Herrera fantastic in midfield but they were all at it.

“It wasn’t just for 20 minutes, it was the whole game. They had some spells they had to sit off because Arsenal are a good side.

“It gets the fans onside, it creates a good atmosphere. If it starts at the front, usually players behind follow and Rashford was fantastic again.

“Herrera as well, who doesn’t play enough games for me because I think he’s the one midfielder they’ve got who can get about.

“[Jesse] Lingard, good to see him back at it, but when you’ve got a team doing this you’re going to get the fans back on side.

“They deserved a point in the end.”
