Manchester United Player Slated For First-Half Display Against Manchester City
Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera felt the wrath of fans on social media after a poor first half display against Manchester City.
With Paul Pogba suspended for the derby, Herrera was drafted in and the United faithful hoped he would be able to put in the type of disciplined performance he produced to pocket Eden Hazard in the 2-0 win at Old Trafford last season.
But today, the Spaniard had a very underwhelming first half, failing to get near any of City's attacking players and being utterly dreadful when in possession of the ball.
Here are some of the many reactions:
Ander Herrera, what a horrible human being

Ander Herrera should be an advert for everything wrong with modern football. Embarrassingly throwing himself on the deck/screaming at the ref every two minutes. Horrible bloke.

What I can see is that Ander Herrera really needs to pick up the pace here...
Players are jogging passed him..

Is Ander Herrera the most horrible footballer of all time?

City completed dominated their rivals for the first half but had to wait until the 42nd minute to open the scoring when David Silva broke free in the box from a corner and poked the ball past David De Gea.
Marcus Rashford equalised in first-half stoppage time though, pouncing on a mistake from Fabian Delph and slotting past Ederson.
