Javier Hernandez scored Manchester United’s opening two goals in their 4-0 win over Wigan today to put himself in the top ten scorers in the league despite limited playing time.

Our Mexican has recognised the importance of turning around our away form and is chuffed to be top of the league.

“It was very important we got the three points. We’re wanting to improve the away games because we know we’ve lost a lot of points,” said Hernandez. “We wanted to improve that today, we played very well and we scored goals. We know we need to score first because we know that we’ll play very well. I am very happy, I’m enjoying a lot of these games in the season and I want it to go very well. We are very happy because we are top of the league, the Champions League is there too.”
