Ander Herrera has warned Leicester City they will not find it easy to win the Premier League title against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Leicester travel to Manchester this weekend knowing that three points would guarantee them an unlikely league title.
However, Man United are still in the hunt for a top four finish in the Premier League. Louis van Gaal’s side are currently fifth in the table, five points behind fourth-placed Arsenal, who have played a game more. Herrera warned Leicester that United will be doing all they can to beat the Foxes.
“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,” Herrera said.
“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.”
A top four finish has looked unlikely this season following some abysmal results and performances but United have somehow kept themselves within touching distance, although they have been helped by the poor form of Manchester City and Arsenal above them.
It would be a remarkable story if Leicester did win the league, and they fully deserve the triumph, but they will find it tough going against a United side who have looked more focussed in recent weeks. The Foxes will also be without the suspended Jamie Vardy, who scored against United in the reserve fixture at the King Power stadium earlier this season.
