Manchester United put themselves back in the frame for a top-four spot after a 2-0 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford earlier today.
Herrera provided the assist for Marcus Rashford, who started up front alongside Jesse Lingard.
The Spaniard was sent off in last month’s FA Cup tie against the visitors at Stamford Bridge.

But this time, he man-marked Eden Hazard and kept the Blues’ star player quiet.
And Mourinho provided some positive words about the midfielder when asked for his thoughts after the game.
“He had a tough time because the referee in that match [the cup tie] created a problem,” Mourinho said.
“The performance was very similar today [of Herrera], the team played in a similar way, but the difference was we had 11 players for 90 minutes.”
United are fifth in the table, four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City.
