Javier Hernandez says 'I'm no hero' after salvaging point for Man United

Javier Hernandez insists he is no hero despite coming off the bench to salvage a point for Manchester United at Liverpool
Javier Hernandez Chicharito
The Mexican has endured a stop-start second campaign at Old Trafford – suffering concussion in pre-season before subsequent knocks ruled him out of further games.

But after his second-half introduction at Anfield his poacher’s instinct was apparent as he stole in at lightning pace to nod in Danny Welbeck’s flick from a Nani corner.

It was his third goal of the season, cancelling out Steven Gerrard’s free-kick opener to secure a point from a match that was later overshadowed by United defender Patrice Evra’s allegation he was racially abused by Liverpool forward Luis Suarez.

The draw preserved second-placed United’s unbeaten record ahead of next weekend’s Manchester derby with leaders City.

But the modest Hernandez said: ‘I scored a goal but it is Manchester United that scored. There are no heroes here.’

Javier Hernandez Chicharito And Wayne Rooney
As well as the clinical finishing of the striker, affectionately known as ‘Little Pea’, a lacklustre United – minus Wayne Rooney who was left on the bench following his midweek England ban disappointment – also required heroics from keeper David de Gea.

The Spaniard has sometimes looked less than assured in his debut Premier League season but brilliantly denied Dirk Kuyt and Jordan Henderson late on.

Twelve months after he was forced to bulk up to cope with the physicality of the league, Hernandez is watching De Gea do the same.

‘David is working day by day and the good thing is that he wants to work,’ added the 23-year-old Mexican.

‘He knows to play in this shirt, you need to enjoy it. But he’s also aware it’s a big responsibility. He’s handling it very well.’
