Hernandez: Victory may be pivotal

Published Add your comment

Javier Hernandez believes Manchester United's 3-2 win over Chelsea could have a decisive bearing on the destination of this year's Barclays Premier League.

Hernandez struck 15 minutes from time to help United claim their first top-flight win at Stamford Bridge in over 10 years. The victory extended United's winning streak to five matches and also narrowed the gap on league leaders Chelsea to just one point.

"This game could have changed the title," the Mexican said. "That's why it was important we didn't allow them to get ahead. It was vital to get the three points at a very tough place. We are in there in the fight to win (the Premier League)."
