Although many United fans believe scorer, Kimpembe should not have even been on the pitch after repeatedly fouling throughout the first 55 minutes.

“I think the game was tight until the corner [from which Kimpembe scored]. After the first goa,l they played the way they wanted,” Herrera tells BT Sport after a testing evening for United which also saw Paul Pogba sent off late on.

“After the first goal everything changes, it was under control and we were better until that moment. The game could have finished 0-0 if they hadn’t scored from that corner, but they did.

“After that, they played on the counter, they have very quick players, but it was tight until the corner.

“Now we have good examples, having won at Spurs and Arsenal – big teams, big games, and we will try to win away. We all are very optimistic and positive, it’s just one result and we’re in a good moment. We’re going to continue.

“It’s a tough night and tomorrow will be a tough day but our focus is to stay in the top four and stay in the FA Cup.”

United are next in action in the FA Cup on Monday, as they visit Chelsea in the fifth round of the competition.

They then have Premier League meetings with Liverpool, Crystal Palace and Southampton to take in before travelling to France for the second leg of their last-16 encounter with PSG on March 6.

It is a herculean task now for Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s wards.
