Ander Herrera’s 86KPH rocket in FA Cup

Ander Herrera might have prevented a classic FA Cup upset, but at least he did it in style.

Manchester United were lacklustre for the opening hour of their third round tie away to Yeovil Town overnight, unable to put away a side bottom of League One – the third tier of English football.

That was until Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera illustrated the difference in class with an amazing volley on the turn, fizzing his shot past ‘keeper Jed Steer and into the top corner.


Ange Di Maria sealed the 2-0 win on his return from injury with a neat finish of his own in the closing moments.

Elsewhere, Manchester City needed stoppage time to edge past Sheffield Wednesday while Chelsea and Arsenal both won through to the next round.
