Manchester United ace confident despite a lack of goals

Javier HernandezJavier Hernandez insists Manchester United’s recent struggle for goals does not concern him, as long as his side are winning.

The runaway league leaders have managed just three goals in their last four games and two of those have been own goals from opposition defenders.

Hernandez, who has 16 goals in all competitions for United this season, insists that it doesn’t matter where the goals come from as long as the Old Trafford side are winning games.

“Sometimes you can score a lot of goals and sometimes you are only scoring a few. It’s part of football,” he told MUTV’s Countdown to Kick-off show.

“In some parts of the season we have scored a lot of goals. In December [and into January] we scored at least two goals in a few games in a row. That happens.

“We are working very hard to try and create as many chances as we can and when we have those chances we always try to score. The most important thing for us is to win the games – even if we win 1-0 we would still love that.”

The Old Trafford outfit are close to securing the Premier League title as they lead Manchester City by 12 points but Hernandez insists United are keeping their focus on Sunday’s trip to Stoke rather than silverware.

He added: “We have to forget about that [when United could win the title]. We are only thinking about Stoke.

“We are taking it game by game. It’s Stoke now and then we’ll think about West Ham [on Wednesday] and then the next game.”
