Manchester United are 15 points behind Chelsea but they can close the gap to 12 points if they overcome Hull City later tonight.
Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera wants Manchester United to forget about catching Chelsea and aim for second place in the Premier League.
“At the moment, Chelsea are many points ahead and, to be honest, we have to think about second place right now,” Herrera told United Review.
“We are six points behind second spot and, in the Premier League, anything can happen in two weeks. Any team could be second, third or sixth.
“We must win against Hull and not think about the rest or the next game. We just need to win and try to get into the top four as soon as possible, but we should have our minds focused on the fact that we can be in second place soon.”
