Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has insisted that he will do his best to establish himself in the first-team at Old Trafford.
As reported by the club's official site, the Spaniard, who scored the Red Devils' second goal in their 3-0 victory at Goodison Park against Everton on Saturday, claims he trained 'really hard' in the build up to the fixture on Merseyside.
Herrera was one of the club's standout players against the Toffees and now hopes to kick on in Manchester over the course of the campaign.

The midfielder stated: “I have trained really hard in these two weeks. I wanted to play as soon as possible and the manager gave me the chance. I enjoyed the chance he gave to me and I want to keep helping the team. I am a team player and when I play I will do my best.
“I scored and got an assist, so I can enjoy. I am very happy. I want to be a top player and I have to play like this always. You want to always be in the team but this is Manchester United. You have to play really good if you want to be in the team every day, so that’s what I want to do.
“I think people are happy with me and they value me because I always try to give everything for the team. I am really proud because I am at Manchester United and I will try to do my best to establish myself in the first team.”
Class of Herrera
Herrera's performance against Everton really was admirable. There are a number of reasons why the United faithful have taken the elegant star to their hearts. A non-stop runner, Herrera has a touch of class about him, a great deal of creativity and an eye for goal. What's not to like?
He has the credentials to become a key member of the United side and it's time for Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal to trust him week in, week out.
With Herrera in the side, United are a far more efficient and dynamic outfit. He's the perfect midfield runner, so there's no reason why he won't have a key role to play in the club's pursuit of success this season.
