Herrera calls for United to maintain focus
Ander Herrera says Manchester United should look no further ahead than their Premier League clash with Fulham on Saturday.
The Red Devils will head to Craven Cottage on the back of nine wins and a draw from their 10 matches since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as interim manager in December.
The feel-good factor has returned to Old Trafford but following their clash with Fulham they face a potentially season defining run of fixtures.
First of all they will play host to Paris Saint Germain in the first-leg of their Champions League last 16 tie, before they then take on Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round and leaders Liverpool in the Premier League.
It would be easy for United's players to look ahead to those fixtures, but Herrera has urged his team-mates to focus only on Fulham.
"It will be a big mistake if we think further than Fulham," the midfielder was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. "That's a massive game for us because Chelsea are playing (Manchester) City.
"Let's go game by game, because if you lose one game you regret. Now for Fulham, then we will think about PSG.
"The best way to prepare for the PSG game is to try and win away at Fulham and that's the way I think."
Herrera has also dismissed the chances of United maintaining their unbeaten run under Solskjaer for the rest of the season.
"That is impossible, the Premier League is so tough, City is a fantastic team and they lost away at Newcastle the other day.
"In the Premier League it's impossible to go unbeaten from when the manager came in, to have 25 or 30 games unbeaten."
