Herrera voted our Player of the Month for May

Ander Herrera has won the final Player of the Month award for the 2017/18 season, as voted for by the Manchester United supporters.

The Spaniard was a relatively comfortable winner in our poll, by collecting 53% of the end result. The Spaniard's team-mates Ashley Young (31%) and Chris Smalling (16%) were also nominated for the prize.

It is the first time that Herrera has won the accolade since April 2017, which was the same month he won the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award.
Ander Herrera made three appearances in May against West Ham, Watford and Chelsea

Although May was a disappointing month overall for United, Herrera’s showings were one of the highlights.

After sitting out our first game of the month against Brighton & Hove Albion, Ander played the full 90 against West Ham. Our no.21 played in a slightly more defensive role at the London Stadium in the absence of Nemanja Matic and his work rate ensured we emerged from the encounter with a clean sheet.

Herrera was then a substitute in the final league game of the season against Watford, when his team-mate Michael Carrick waved farewell to Old Trafford following his final appearance as a player.

He was selected to start at Wembley in the Emirates FA Cup final and, despite it being a frustrating occasion, Herrera was at the heart of our best attacking moves and his incisive passing nearly cut Chelsea open on several occasions.

Congratulations on your award, Ander.
