It was the Spaniard’s second of the afternoon, with this one coming off the back of a Juan Mata assist.
Wayne Rooney won possession off a drop ball in the middle of the pitch and drove at the Villa defence, before picking out Mata on the edge of the area. Mata then showed excellent vision to play in an onrushing Herrera, who swept home a first time side-footed shot beyond the helpless Brad Guzan.
The game ended 3-1 and has moved Man United onto 62 points and into third place, temporarily ahead of bitter rivals Manchester City who play away at Crystal Palace tomorrow afternoon.
Manchester United play Manchester City in what promises to be a huge derby game next weekend, with both sides looking to make a late challenge on Chelsea’s strangle-hold on first place.
