Herrera is so turned on by his red-hot threesome esome
ANDER HERRERA says Manchester United have the best front three in the WORLD.
And the Spaniard insists he’s determined to keep providing the ammunition for them to keep the goals flowing.
With summer loan signing Radamel Falcao now up and running after opening his United goals account with the winner in last Sunday’s 2-1 victory over Everton, boss Louis van Gaal is certainly spoiled for choice.
And even though Chelsea hitman Diego Costa is banging them in for fun, Herrera insists he wouldn’t swap United’s star-studded forward trio for anyone.
The midfielder said: “I think we have maybe the best three strikers in the world at the club in Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Falcao.
“It’s down to Juan Mata, Angel Di Maria, Adnan Januzaj, Daley Blind, Darren Fletcher and myself to help them to score.
“I’m lucky because I play with a lot of attacking teammates and I want to try to create chances for them.”
Keeping goals out has been a problem for United in the early part of the season.
But the Red Devils have endless forward options, with former Real Madrid winger Di Maria looking a class act with three goals to his name.
Herrera, 25, has weighed in with a couple of goals in an injury-hit start to his Old Trafford career.
The Spain international – who admits he’d love to follow in the footsteps of United legend Paul Scholes – is determined to get on the scoresheet even more once he has recovered from the fractured rib that is set to keep him out for a month.
“I’m a player who loves to keep the ball and always attack,” he added.
“I am always looking forward from the first minute.
“I’m going to try to score more. That’s important for the midfielders.
“I always say the same thing though – if I score and the team doesn’t win, it’s no good.
“I want to help the team with my goals. It is something I need and want to improve on.”
Despite a hit-and-miss start under Van Gaal, United are in the top four for the first time in a year.
But the acid test is on its way with matches against Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal following the international break.
Herrera won’t look too far ahead, but he knows where United need to be aiming.
He added: “I always say we need to take it match by match.
“I don’t want to think about the future. The most important thing is to win matches now.
“We have our objectives. We are Manchester United and we know we need to be at the top of the league.”
