No one has any doubts as to how good a player Ander Herrera is, and though he's only featured for a handful of games so far this season, he's still capable of producing moments of magic.

Despite his limited appearances this term, the 27-year-old has been in inspired form for the Red Devils, and displayed his confidence and style in one move against West Ham on Wednesday night.

United ran out 4-1 winners against the Hammers to book a place in the EFL Cup semi-final, and while there were many talking points, there was one moment that the cameras missed that is definitely worth revisiting.

Receiving the ball deep inside his own half from Anthony Martial, the Spanish international laid the ball off for Wayne Rooney with a stylish turn that came about in one fluid motion.

It was an exceedingly classy move from an endlessly talented player that set United off on yet another attack.

Goals that night were bagged by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial, who combined to cancel out Ashley Fletcher's leveller.

United's resolute performance was carried out despite Jose Mourinho's touchline ban that saw him confined to the stands.

Ander Herrera has featured just 15 times so far this term, scoring one goal and recording one assist in the process.

And though the stats aren't on his side there, his general form for the Red Devils has been excellent and with moments like that shown in the video above peppering his game, it's easy to see why he's such a fan favourite up at the Theatre of Dreams.

However, where Herrera falls short in terms of his goal scoring and assists, he makes up for with his passing.

The numbers show that Herrera has an overall pass completion rate of 88.7% from an average of 67.9 passes per game.

And if he pulls them off like this fans will certainly be hoping to see more of him in the future.
