Cape Town - Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has urged his team-mates to maintain their focus and determination to win when they travel to Stoke this weekend.

The Red Devils have made a perfect start to their Premier League campaign, winning three consecutive games without conceding, but Herrera wants Jose Mourinho's side to guard against complacency on Saturday.

"The Premier League is very long and every team can beat you," the Spaniard told MUTV. "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."

The last time United claimed all three points at the Britannia Stadium was in 2013 when they won 2-0 thanks to goals from Michael Carrick and Robin van Persie.
