United and Jose Mourinho were heavily criticised for ‘parking the bus’ against the Reds at Anfield with Herrera picking up the man of the match award from Sky Sports after a disciplined defensive display.

The midfielder was ‘proud’ of his side’s performance and has suggested that they must bring that style of play into every big game for the rest of the campaign.

‘This is the way we have to play big matches,’ said Herrera after the game.

We were better in the first half, but they were better in the second half. David made two fantastic saves but Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] as well had a big chance.
