Ander Herrera: Wants to keep top-four bid alive

Ander Herrera says Manchester United will do all they can to delay Leicester’s Premier League title party and keep their own top-four hopes alive with victory at Old Trafford on Sunday.

After a remarkable season, Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes can secure their first ever Premier League crown with a victory at Old Trafford in front of the live TV cameras.

However, Manchester United still very much need a win themselves if they are to secure a top-four finish and a return to the Champions League. Louis van Gaal’s side currently sit five points behind fourth-placed Arsenal with a game in hand.

And, speaking at a Manchester United Foundation event, Herrera said he and his team-mates were in no mood to watch Leicester win the title win at Old Trafford.

“First of all I have to say that we think about Manchester United, we are still in the race, we have to be in the top four it’s very important for us,” he told Sky Sports News HQ.

“After that it is true that we are playing against Leicester, a very good side who are playing fantastic. But we don’t want them to win the title at Old Trafford – I think they deserve to win the league but I hope they can do it at home.

“We are Manchester United and we have to win because we have to be in the Champions League next season.

“Leicester can win the league at Old Trafford but it is not our business. Our business is Manchester United, we have to fight until the end for the top four and that’s what we are going to do.

“After that if Leicester wants to win the league at home they will have to play very good because I think we are in a good moment.”
