Ander Herrera states his prediction for Stoke v Man United
Ander Herrera looks ahead to Manchester United's Premier League trip to Stoke City on Saturday
Ander Herrera has warned Manchester United that the Red Devils “cannot relax” when they take on Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday.
Jose Mourinho’s men have made a fine start to the new Premier League season and currently find themselves top of the table after having won all three of their opening games.
Manchester United have earned plenty of praise for their displays after they secured victories over West Ham, Swansea and Leicester, scoring 10 goals without reply in the process.
However, midfielder Herrera has warned his team-mates that they cannot take anything for granted as they prepare to take on the Potters, who have already beaten Arsenal this season.
Herrera told MUTV: “The Premier League is very long and every team can beat you.
“Now we have to face Stoke, and we’ve had four seasons without winning there. It’s been a good way to start [the campaign] but we cannot relax.
“We are ready to face them and, hopefully, the weather is not so bad there because, when it is bad, it is very difficult to play. We are ready. No excuses – let’s try to win there. We are Manchester United, so we are not scared.
“Always, against Manchester United, every team or every fan of the opponent are waiting for us. It’s a big day for us. We have to be equal to their attitude and then we have to show our quality. The first thing is the attitude. The atmosphere is going to be against us, but that is normal.”
Manchester United are aiming to win the Premier League title for the first time this season since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement at the end of the 2012-13 campaign.
The Red Devils won both the EFL Cup and Europa League in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge at Old Trafford last season.
