Manchester United 2 – 1 Valencia – The best United GIFs
Manchester United finished their pre season preperations with a victory in Louis van Gaal’s first game at Old Trafford with a 2-1 win over Spanish side Valencia on Tuesday night.
The win sees the Reds undefeated in pre season as the payers look to rebuild confidence heading into a new season.
Goals from Darren Fletcher and Maruanne Fellaini gave United the win,the later coming in injury time.
Youngsters Tyler Blackett and Reece James were given starts as injured duo Jonny Evans and Luke Shaw missed out. Newly appointed club captain Wayne Rooney led the side and new vice captain Darren Fletcher started in midfield alongside another Old Trafford debutante – Ander Herrera.
Its our new Spanish signing who impressed and dominates this blog post as he features in all of my Top 5 GIFs from the game…
1. Ander Herrera Control
With an awkward looking pass fired at him, Ander Herrera somehow manages to maneuver his leg to get touch on the ball and bring it down for United to gain possession.
2. Ander Herrera Tackle
Not only is Herrera a wonderful player to watch with his ability on the ball but he loves to get stuck in – something which United fans have longed to see in their midfield for a while. All signs point to them having a new midfield general to love.
3. Ander Herrera Pass
Picking up the ball deep, Ander Herrera sees off the attentions of his man before drilling a diagonal to wing back Ashley Young who delivers a brilliant first time cross that sees Wayne Rooney win a penalty.
4. Ander Herrera Skill Pass,Wayne Rooney/Juan Mata Play
Herrera gets United attacking in a dangerous position with this lovely flicked pass that is followed by some nice interchange between Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata.
5. Ander Herrera Touch
With the ball dropping from the sky and under pressure from 2 players, Herrera uses one stunning to touch to control the ball before cleverly creating himself space to pick a pass.
