Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has insisted that he was confident that Spaniard Ander Herrera would be able to occupy the No.10 role. 

Speaking ahead of the Red Devils' Premier League clash with Welsh outfit Swansea City on Sunday, the United boss claimed that Herrera did well against Club Brugge in midweek. 

Herrera, of course, made his first start of the campaign in Belgium on Wednesday evening and slotted into the No.10 position for the second half. In fact, the dynamic midfielder found the net before being replaced by Javier Hernandez, and Van Gaal seemingly wasn't surprised by the player's fine performance.

Van Gaal told MUTV: "I had a theoretical scheme in my head that he could play at no.10 and he did it well against Brugge."

Herrera, then, will no doubt be hoping to secure a starting place this weekend, as the Red Devils go in search of claiming all three points against the Swans. 

Herrera must play 

There's no doubt about it, with Herrera in the team, the dynamics of the Manchester United side completely change. He really is the midfield runner that the Red Devils need in their side, and he should start in a midfield trio. 

Ultimately, Manchester United fans have waxed lyrical about the Spaniard for some time, and you can hardly blame them. 

Herrera adds so much to the United cause. A creator and a goalscorer, he will roam about the pitch, while providing moments of quality. He must stay in the United team. 

Manchester United fans: Do you agree? Should Herrera start week in, week out? Have your say below!
