Ander Herrera: Manchester United will turn their luck around

by Tanveer Arayan

Ander Herrera is confident Manchester United will soon turn their luck around in the Premier League.

Jose Mourinho’s men have won just one of their last eight league matches and enter the weekend nine points off a Champions League qualification.

Sundays fixture at Old Trafford offers Man United the opportunity to close the gap on fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and end a run of four successive league draws at home.

Speaking about the situation, Herrera has been left frustrated by recent results.

“To be honest, I don’t think we have to look at the table and think who is above, who is below, who is the next game,” he said. “Luck is going to change for us for sure because we are doing good things.

“I have never seen one team who is creating more chances than the opponent and doesn’t win, so if we can keep playing the way we can then we will get the results.

“To be honest, I don’t want to see the table. I just want to think Tottenham and then try to win, then we have Crystal Palace, West Brom, Sunderland.

“We want to go on a winning run because we are behind fourth place and if we stay there we will not be so happy.

“I usually speak with David (de Gea) and Juan (Mata) about this situation and I don’t know the stats, but for sure we are creating more chances than last season and we are conceding less chances but we are worse off in the table. I cannot believe it.

“Football is like this but if we carry on like this, then our luck will change for sure. We have very good players. The most difficult thing in football is to create chances.

“We just need to keep doing what we have been doing and for sure time will be better for us.”

No team has conceded fewer than Spurs and United’s record of 19, but they’ve been let down by their misfiring attacking options.

Hopes are they can make the most of the opportunity to close the gap on Tottenham on Sunday and end the disappointing league results.
