Ander Herrera says Champions League place is at stake in Manchester derby

• Midfielder says clash with Manchester City will be ‘the game of the season’

Having starred in the 2-0 win against the leaders, Chelsea, last week, the Spain midfielder Herrera played a pivotal role in the 2-0 victory against Burnley at Turf Moor and he admitted the meeting with Pep Guardiola’s side could be make or break for both teams.
