Cape Town - Manchester United’s Ander Herrera believes it is dangerous for his team-mates to think about their unbeaten run.

The Red Devils have won nine and drawn one match under the guidance of interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has lead a revolution of sorts at Old Trafford.

However, the Spaniard does not believe it’s possible to go unbeaten for the rest of the season, especially with a difficult Champions League tie against Ligue 1 dominators Paris-Saint Germain next week Tuesday.

"That is impossible," Herrera told Goal.

"The Premier League is so tough, City is a fantastic team and they lost away at Newcastle. In the Premier League, it's impossible to go unbeaten from when the manager came in, to have 25 or 30 games unbeaten.

"Let's go game by game because, if you lose one game, you regret. Now, for Fulham, then we will think about PSG.

“The best way to prepare for the PSG game is to try and win away at Fulham and that's the way I think."

That's not to say Herrera has not been inspired by Solskjaer…

"We are very happy with him at the moment," continued the midfielder.

"I am only going to speak about what is happening now. I'm not comparing. Everyone feels free. We're playing with a lot of freedom, this is one of the things he is talking about every day."
