It's safe to say that Ander Herrera has well and truly established himself as a fans' favourite at Old Trafford. 

The Manchester United midfielder may have struggled to secure a prominent role on a consistent basis in Louis van Gaal's team over the course of the past couple of years, but he's most definitely adored by supporters. 

His passion and love for the club is clear for all to see and he certainly wears his heart on his sleeve when on the field of play.

But which players make up his ultimate United five-a-side team? Well, taking to Twitter during a Q&A session, the midfielder has revealed all...

In goal, unsurprisingly, is his compatriot, David de Gea, who continues to shine week in, week out for the Red Devils. 

Herrera's five-a-side team 

The former Atletico Madrid 'keeper has once again been the club's standout player and continues to prove his class between the sticks. 

The quartet of Antonio Valencia, Daley Blind, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial have also been selected by the United midfielder. 

Valencia recently returned from a lengthy spell on the sidelines and has impressed at right-back, while Blind has enjoyed a fine campaign alongside Chris Smalling at the heart of the club's defence. 

Ex-Chelsea man Juan Mata hasn't exactly hit his best form for the club this term, but he has been a consistent performer nonetheless.

Anthony Martial, on the other hand, has enjoyed a glorious debut season at the Theatre of Dreams. Following his arrival from AS Monaco, the versatile forward has gone from strength-to-strength and looks set to become a huge player for the club. 

Fastest player 

The United midfielder was also asked to pick his fastest teammate, but he failed to choose just one player.

Indeed, Herrera selected Martial, Marcus Rashford and Antonio Valencia. In all honesty, it's difficult to disagree with him.

It's safe to say that United fans will be hoping to see Herrera in action as the Red Devils play host to Premier League table-toppers Leicester City on Sunday. The Foxes can secure the title if they claim all three points in Manchester.
