Ander Herrera on scoring goals and the importance of a top-four finish


Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera says he set no specific goals target for the season but is eager to improve his goal scoring record.

The Spaniard struggled to secure a regular place in Louis van Gaal's side at the start of the season but is slowly becoming an important element in the United midfield.

He was already a target for the Red Devils two seasons ago but they had to wait last summer's transfer window to secure the services of the former Athletic Bilbao man.

"I haven't really got a target for goals," Herrera told the club's official website.

"I think we're a very attacking side and I just want to help, I knew that scoring goals was one of the things I could improve on, but I don't want to stop now.

"I want to keep working and helping the team. The most important thing is that we win, but of course, when I score I'm happy."

United host Sunderland this Saturday and the 25-year-old says the home game against the Black Cats is a golden opportunity to consolidate their position in the top four and move closer to Champions League qualification.

"I think it's [the Sunderland game is] the biggest of the season," he said.

"The next game is always the biggest, we can regain third position because Southampton had a tough game [against Liverpool].

"Our goal is to be in the top four, to get Champions League football and win the FA Cup - we don't want to drop out of the top four.

"We didn't beat Sunderland at the start of the season, and now we have a good chance to beat them at home. We respect all our our rivals, but we must start the game on top."
