Manchester United midfielder, Ander Herrera, explained how he intends to stop Eden Hazard in the FA Cup final, claiming that only a perfect team effort would suffice.


Herrera was heavily lauded back in April when he neutralised the Chelsea number 10 by shadowing him all game long. He picked up the Man of the Match award as his side beat Chelsea 2-0 at Old Trafford. 


The Spaniard, who is expected to start next Saturday, said his team-mates also deserve the credit for neutralising the Belgian. 



"If we want to stop him we need it from all of us, like we did at Old Trafford," the Spaniard told Graham Hunter in an exclusive interview, as quoted by Football. London


"I know I was the protagonist after the game because of the man-marking. But if Jesse and Marcus, and Felli and Paul, who were in front of me, hadn’t done the job they did, Hazard would have received the ball."


"They were playing with three defenders and Jesse and Marcus did not let those defenders come with the ball easy and then play to Hazard or to Willian. I know I was on the front page the next day, but credit for Marcus, Jesse, Paul and for Fellaini, they were in front of me stopping that easy ball to Hazard."




United are the overwhelming favourites in the FA Cup final against Chelsea. Jose Mourinho's men prepared for the tie with a ​1-0 win over Watford and would push hard to bag their first silverware of the season.
