Ander Herrera hopes that underdogs Manchester United can show their bite in the Manchester derby and replicate their stunning win at Juventus.
Pep Guardiola's swashbuckling Manchester City lie in wait at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, when the Red Devils will look to build on a tremendous Champions League night in Turin.
Cristiano Ronaldo's exceptional volley set Juventus on course for victory in Wednesday's Group H encounter, only for United to dig deep and secure a late 2-1 win – the first group-stage loss the Italians had suffered at home since 2009.
Victory is a welcome boost ahead of Sunday's derby with City – a side that United shocked 3-2 in April and Herrera considers alongside Juventus as Europe's top team right now.
United have, though, suffered striking losses this season and under-performed at times, which is why they are out of the Carabao Cup and seventh in the Premier League.
Little wonder, then that Herrera refused to talk about the race for the top four or a title challenge.
"We are the real Manchester United also in the bad moments because we have to recognise that we have had bad moments and we have to improve," the Spaniard added.
"It's true that the last results gave us good spirit, energy, but the real Manchester United we will see at the end of the season if we can say that we had a good season."
