Ander Herrera has acknowledged that Manchester United vs Liverpool is a bigger game than the Manchester derby, but insists that Sunday’s game against City is still very important.

I have the experience of last year, when we beat them at home, and I think it was the best atmosphere of the season. I know for our people, our fans, the game against Liverpool is bigger, but it [the City game] is also very important for our fans too. Man City is first in the table, so it’s a challenge for us. We have the possibility to be first on Sunday night. It’s a derby first, and second you get the chance to be ahead – that’s what we want. Our aim is to fight for everything, to be involved in all the trophies. That’s what Manchester United has to do.
