Hernandez hails ‘lucky’ United

Manchester United striker Javier HernandezManchester United striker Javier Hernandez celebrated his team’s 3-2 Premier League comeback against Aston Villa.

United trailed 2-0 early in the second-half, but rampaged to victory with two efforts from Hernandez and a Ron Vlaar own goal.

When asked about the Red Devils’ comeback, he replied:

“It’s the lucky story of Manchester United. You know that!” He is quoted by The Metro.

“You never want to give up because games are 90 minutes and you need to fight until the last minute.

“Thankfully we got the three points. We need to improve because we’re conceding a lot of goals but this result is going to give us a lot of confidence.”

Chicharito has been in fine form of late for the Manchester club, netting against the likes of Chelsea and Braga.

However, the Mexican didn’t press the matter as to whether he should be a first-team regular at Old Trafford:

“The most important thing is that United are top of the league and after being 2-0 down that is a good result.”

Andreas Weimann netted twice to put the Midlanders 2-0 up at Villa Park.

But, substitute Hernandez pulled one back after 58 minutes, before seeing another effort deflect in off of Vlaar five minutes later.

He then added the winner with three minutes to play with a close-range header.
