Ander Herrera Responds To Gary Neville's Leicester City Claim

Ander Herrera Responds To Gary Neville's Leicester City Claim

Gary Neville had a go at Ander Herrera after Manchester United's draw with Leicester City. Now the Manchester United man has fired back at the club's former right back on social media.

It's not like Manchester United can afford to gift Manchester City any points in the Premier League title race. If it were a race then their rivals are about 10 miles down the road of this particular marathon.

On Saturday night though the Red Devils pretty much gave City two points. Jose Mourinho's side dominated Leicester City for the entirety of the second half but couldn't come away with a win.

Chris Smalling had been injured with minutes left but was still on the pitch when the equaliser was scored and Gary Neville claimed that Ander Herrera refused to cover Smalling, telling Sky Sports:

"Smalling has got to flag up as an experienced defender that he's struggling, get someone else into the centre. It didn't happen for two or three minutes.

"Then Phil Jones recognised it had happened and tried to reorganise - as I saw it, Ander Herrera refused to go to right-back and told Henrikh Mkhitaryan to go back there."

And in his Christmas message on Twitter the Spaniard clearly refuted the claim from Neville:

Herrera had a storming season for United last season but he has mostly been used as a backup this term since the club signed Nemanja Matic from Chelsea.

In Saturday's game Leicester took the lead through Jamie Vardy before Juan Mata equalised before half time, the Spaniard's free kick gave the title chasers a second half lead.

However Mourinho watched on as Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard all blew relatively easy chances to put the game beyond Claude Puel's side.

Daniel Amartey's red card made it even more difficult for the hosts but with mere seconds remaining Maguire struck to leave Pep Guardiola's side 13 points clear of United.
