Chicha enjoying new era

Javier Hernandez is enjoying life under David Moyes at Manchester United after making an "easy" adjustment to the new manager's methods.

The Reds are now on a six-match unbeaten run in all competitions ahead of today's trip to Fulham, with Chicharito contributing two goals in his last three games.

"It's easy [to adapt] when he’s a good person and a good manager," the Mexican striker told MUTV. "I think he is getting used to the club. Everton is a very important club in this country as well, but with the history and tradition at Manchester United, he needs time to get used to it, to find that rhythm to get good results and start winning titles."

Chicharito found himself on the fringes of the first team earlier in the campaign after missing pre-season due to international commitments with Mexico. After his recent return to the teamsheet and scoresheet, he wants to play a bigger role and help United rise up the table. "I hope that I can get more minutes now," he added. "I always want to play. I want to contribute as much as possible."

The forward feels his contribution shouldn't be solely about finding the net though, despite his consistently impressive strike-rate. "I never play just to score goals. I'm not obsessed with scoring goals. If you score goals in any position, it gives you a lot of confidence - and that [applies] a little bit more when you're a striker. But I just want to improve day by day as a footballer, as a professional and as a person. That's the most important thing to me in life.

"When the goals come, I'm going to be glad. But even if I don't score, I still need to get my confidence up and my sharpness, and work to help my team-mates win games."
