Ander Herrera warns Manchester City: We’re in season best form

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera believes they’re in prime form for the derby against Manchester City.

United kicked off December with a superb 3-1 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium and face a busy spell of games in three competitions over the coming weeks.

“We are going to find our best moment very soon,” he told after Sunday’s win. “We are second and chasing to be top of the table.

“It was a fantastic result [at Arsenal] with some great performances. David [De Gea] was amazing, and we were clinical in the first half, with two chances in the first 15 minutes and two goals. Then of course Arsenal have a lot of quality and they were going to create chances, but for the two or three big ones they had, David was there so we’re very happy.

“Jesse [Lingard] is on fire now, Paul [Pogba] as well, it’s a pity he got a red card. Romelu [Lukaku] didn’t score but he helped us a lot. The centre-backs – Victor [Lindelof] is in fantastic form right now. So we are optimistic of course.”

When asked how big a confidence boost the win at Arsenal was, ahead of next Sunday’s mouth-watering Manchester derby, Herrera insisted: “I’m not thinking about Sunday, now it’s about CSKA [Moscow]. We are not qualified yet so we don’t think about City yet.”
