Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera is determined to make Leicester wait to lift the Premier League title.

The Foxes can secure their first Premier League crown with a victory at Old Trafford on Sunday, kick off 1.30pm, but Spanish schemer Herrera is confident United can put a spanner in the works and force Claudio Ranieri’s men to put their title celebrations on hold.

Herrera says Manchester United still harbour hopes of joining Leicester in playing Champions League football next season with United currently five points behind fourth-placed Arsenal with a game in hand.

“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.”
