Javier Hernandez insists the overall team performance is more important than his own personal achievement after coming off the bench to net Manchester United's equalising goal in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

The Mexican hit man salvaged a point for the reigning Barclays Premier League champions at Anfield, when he headed home in the 81st minute after a neat flick from his United strike partner Danny Welbeck.

"It was a very tight game," Hernandez revealed. "I think they opened up a little bit more when the second-half started, created chances and scored a goal. But then the game opened up even more and we managed to score a goal too.

"The goal meant a little bit more than the last one I scored here as we lost 3-1 that day. A lot of my team-mates have told me about the atmosphere when playing at Anfield. The fans are great wherever we play but here it was very special.




"But the most important thing is to help my team and my team-mates. There are no heroes in this team and we all want to help, it doesn't matter who scores the goals. We know it is a very important point but I don't feel like a hero. I scored the goal but United scores overall."

Hernandez has endured a difficult start to the 2011-12 campaign, having found himself in and out of the first-team due to a succession of injuries. But now back fully fit, 'Little Pea' as he is known, has set his sights on a run of games.

"I want to do my best in every game," he added. "Having injuries is part of the game, there are always good and bad moments, but we need to be ready, enjoy it and do my best for the team."
