In the post-match, pundit Neville claimed the Spaniard refused to play at right-back against Leicester.
On his podcast, Neville blamed Herrera for Harry Maguire's equaliser: "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.
Herrera later took to Twitter to aim a thinly-veiled response at Neville.
"Happy Christmas to everyone, including the ones that try to invent stories that never happened," he wrote.
