It was difficult to tell who was most delighted with Wayne Rooney's late winner for Manchester United against Liverpool on Sunday, but Ander Herrera must be considered a contender.

The match at Anfield was decided by Rooney's late strike, sparking joyful scenes in the away end, on the pitch and among the bench.

The goalscorer ran towards the corner flag before sliding on his knees. The away end went bonkers, with Phil Jones and Michael Carrick among the visiting supporters. But Herrera might have topped the lot.

With the rest of the bench rising to their feet and punching their fists, Herrera went running down the touchline, seemingly out of control with happiness as he waved around what appeared to be a red towel. 


Manchester United fans enjoyed what they saw...


It's not the first time that Herrera has celebrated so wildly...


The win for Manchester United moved them up to fifth in the Premier League table, seven points behind league leaders Arsenal.
