Herrera is not getting carried away by United’s momentum yet.
Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera says he doesn’t bother checking the Premier League table as he is focused on winning the next game.
The Red Devils sealed a 1-0 win over Leicester City on Sunday to move up to fifth spot in the Premier League table, two points behind Chelsea who are fourth.
However, the Spaniard is happy with how his side are full of belief following a 10-match unbeaten run that includes nine wins across all competitions under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who replaced Jose Mourinho in December.
“It’s something that I am forcing myself to do (to not look at the standings),” he explained as Manutd.com reported. “Let’s go game by game. I think it will be a big mistake if we think further than Fulham [on Saturday].
“Fulham is a massive game for us because I think Chelsea is playing City. So let’s go game by game, because you lose one game and then you regret. So let’s go for Fulham, and then we will think about PSG.”
When asked if he is playing the best football of his United career so far, Herrera replied: “I got the Player of the Year two years ago so I have to think about that as well!
“But I feel very good at the moment and I feel in form. I feel that I can run a lot, I can recover the ball and I feel good when I have it on my feet. But I have always said the same: if, one day, the manager decides to drop me, I will be ready to help the team for 10 minutes, 12 minutes or even two minutes.
“I think that’s the way one team can be successful. The other day I had to be on the bench, Andreas played, and maybe one day Paul has to be on the bench. This is a squad and, in my opinion, a very strong squad. Of course, I am so happy with my moment in the team, but I cannot go crazy with that. The successful seasons are made by the squad, not only by 11, 12 or 13 players.”
