In just three matches, Manchester United have managed to score a number of 12 goals and conceding just 3, with 1 coming from each of the three matches.

Truth be told, Mourinho’s era was hell for the boys, but no one would say such a thing, considering the fact that Portuguese is no longer with the club.

Ander told the media that the interim manager has instructed them to create problem for their opponents by constantly attacking, even when they have lead.

“He loves us to attack, he wants some balance with the center-backs and, in this case, Nemanja [Matic] and me today, but he wants everyone to attack. He wants the full-backs attacking.”

He continued..

“He wants us creating problems for the other teams and that suits us very well.”

“I think the best way to defend a result is to keep attacking,” Herrera said. “Sometimes you have to be careful, but I think that is what we did.

The midfielder who has scored one goal and had two assist under the new manager further explained his comments;

“We kept attacking and we kept creating chances. With the forward players we have it is difficult that we don’t create and that we don’t score goals.”

“I like to help David, and to help the defenders,”

Herrera said. “But I also like to try to score goals.

“I had a good chance today, and I think one of my qualities is that I can go from box-to-box. I can help the team with the ball and without the ball, and I think Ole likes that.” He concluded.
