Ander Herrera : I love scoring for Man Utd fans!

Ander Herrera was delighted to score in Manchester United's EFL Cup win at Northampton.

Herrera's super strike at Sixfields Stadium on Wednesday prompted another excellent knee-slide from the 27-year-old, although he joked during his MUTV interview that he is now trying to avoid bookings.

“I have to control myself a little bit more because the last time I got a yellow card and another time I got a yellow card as well, so this time I stayed a little bit calmer," Ander explained with a smile, when quizzed on his celebrations with the fans. “But I cannot lie, I love to score in front of them!"

Herrera's goal arrived shortly after he had struck the post with a similarly drive effort from range and the former Athletic Club man told Sky Sports that he is looking to improve his scoring tally.

“I know my role and I know I am a midfielder, but when you want to make steps in your development then you have to score goals," Ander pointed out. “I tried to do that and I shot before but the post didn't allow me to score. Finally I scored and I am happy, but overall after a terrible week we got the victory and now we can face Leicester in a better way."
