Herrera: These Two Man Utd Stars Inspired Our Man City Comeback

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has revealed that, after a dismal first half performance in the Manchester derby, a pep talk from two stars inspired the club's comeback against Manchester City.

Mourinho's men found themselves 2-0 down at the Etihad after a woeful opening 45 minutes, which could have seen Pep Guardiola's men lead by a few more goals.

Herrera has since stated that everyone had an opportunity to say something in the dressing room at half-time, and revealed it was the words of veteran Michael Carrick and left back Ashley Young, in particular, that got the boys motivated.

"Everyone was talking but, of course, the oldest guys with the most experience – Ash and Mike – were in the dressing room," the Spaniard said, as quoted by The Sun.

"They have power in their words. We just talked about the pride, about the club – this club, you can never underestimate it.

"We didn't talk too much about tactics, just about our pride. Our pride on the pitch and that our fans were going to have a difficult night if we got beaten.

"We did it for them and, of course, for us and our position in the league, but overall for them.

"I was thinking at half-time that it was going to be difficult for our fans if we got beaten, so I’m happy for them.”
