Hernandez, 24, has been a big hit with United fans following his move from Mexican side Chivas in 2010, scoring 18 goals in his debut season for the Red Devils. And despite notching a very health 12 goals so far this season, he has seen his opportunities limited due to the presence of summer signing Robin van Persie, as well as sharing the striking duties with Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck.

The Mexico international was not involved in Sunday's clash with Liverpool, but the he insists that the club always comes first in relation to his own performances. “It's not just that I want to score more goals. It's a group sport and so I want to do what I can to help the team get the right results every week.

Welbeck earned rave reviews for his performance, despite not scoring, but Hernandez still believes his game suits the way that Sir Alex Ferguson wants United to play. “In the history of Manchester United, the team plays a very direct, attacking game. We want to get the goal as quickly as we can. We want to play with speed,” Hernandez said.

With United having played a tough game on the weekend and a crucial league game against Tottenham coming up on the weekend, Hernandez is could return to play a part in United's FA Cup replay against West Ham on Wednesday. United may also welcome back Rooney, who has been missing for the last three weeks through injury.
