‘Optimistic’ Herrera wants United to finish in top four

Ander Herrera believes “everything” is possible this season for Manchester United following their latest victory over Watford at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

In little over a week the mood around Old Trafford has lifted considerably, thanks to the emergence of exciting young talents and a string of victories.

The FA Cup defeat of Shrewsbury and Europa League mauling of FC Midtjylland was followed by Sunday’s Marcus Rashford-inspired 3-2 win against title-chasing Arsenal.

Juan Mata’s late free-kick saw United run out 1-0 victors against Watford on Wednesday to maintain that momentum, moving them level on points with fourth-place Manchester City.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side have a game in hand but the midweek slip-ups by those sat in the Champions League places has led confidence to build at Old Trafford.

“We are showing passion,” midfielder Herrera said. “We fight to the end.

“We show when we don’t play good we can win. I think that the attitude is very good.

“I am optimistic because we can still fight for everything. We want to be in the top four.

“We know it’s not easy because our opponents are tough – but we are Man United: we have to win.

“We have three competitions to play and we are going to fight to the end.”
