Chicha excited by run-in

Javier Hernandez is anticipating a thrilling end to the season and the chance to help United secure a 20th league title.

The Reds are three points clear at the top with eight games left and there will be plenty of fingernail-biting in both halves of Manchester over the coming weeks.

But Chicharito says this is no time for nerves for him or anyone else in the United camp.

"It’s a part of the season that all the players want to be involved in," the Mexican striker told ESPN. "It’s a long season so these final few games are more emotional for everyone, but we have a big chance to win the Premier League again.

"We’re in a great position because it depends on us – if we win all our games, we’ll win the league. We’re not in Europe so we’ll probably be a little bit fitter, because we’re only playing each weekend and have long weeks to rest and prepare for each game."

Sir Alex believes Hernandez’s recent brace against Wolves, which took his tally to 12 for the season, augurs well for the rest of the campaign.
 
The boss wrote in United Review: "Chicharito got a couple that he needed to bring back his confidence – and a confident Hernandez could be a winner for the closing stages."

Hernandez is just focused on improving each day so that he’s ready to play his part when called upon in the run-in.

"I want to be a world-class player, so I need to work on every aspect of my game: my movement, goals and body strength, because I’m not the tallest or the strongest," the 23-year-old added.

"I need to be ready to compete in this tough league because it’s very physical, quick and technical. With the help of the coaches and my team-mates, I’m improving day by day.

"I do my best and if the manager wants me to play one minute or 90 minutes, I need to be ready to help the team."
