Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is confident his side will progress to the last 16 in the Champions League despite their 2-2 draw with Benfica on Tuesday.

"We will go to Basel to win the game," Chicharito told MUTV. "We have lost two home points against Benfica but this is football. Benfica are a strong team, unbeaten this season, and they played very well against us.

"We are still in the fight, we have nine points and we will go to Switzerland to get another three. We are Manchester United and we never give up, we work very hard for every game."

The Red Devils need a point from their final game against Basel to qualify from Group C, but are likely only to finish second behind the Portuguese outfit who top the table on head-to-head fixtures.

If the Old Trafford side do finish as group runners-up, it may face Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich in the knockout stages, yet the 23-year-old preferred to focus on the task of qualification first.

"First we need to qualify and then look at which teams we will play," he added.
