Javier Hernandez insists Manchester United are not dwelling over the recent lack of goals against teams in the Premier League.

Before Sunday's 2-0 victory over Stoke City, United had only scored three goals in their last four games, which is in stark contrast to the free-scoring Manchester United team that fans are accustomed to watching, bearing in in mind their stellar strike-force comprising of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Hernandez and Danny Welbeck.

The Red Devils were recently unable to score in their FA Cup quarter-final replay against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and, as a result, were forced to bow out of the competition they had their sights set on winning.

Hernandez was talking to MUTV’s Countdown to Kick-off show where he stated the importance of winning games and putting the points on the board.

Hernandez has said that it was irrelevant how the goals were scored and by whom, just as long as they register the victories which would see United pick up their 20th league title. He also implied that the team was eager to bounce back from the derby day disappointment against Manchester City, their closest rivals for the Premier League title.

“Sometimes you can score a lot of goals and sometimes you are only scoring a few," the Mexico international said. "It's part of football.

“In some parts of the season we have scored a lot of goals. In December [and into January] we scored at least two goals in a few games in a row. That happens."

Hernandez stated that the Manchester United team were working very hard on creating chances and that the scoreline did not matter as long as they pick up maximum points.

He added: “The most important thing for us is to win the games - even if we win 1-0 we would still love that."

Hernandez, who has scored 16 times in all competitions has seen his game time limited since the arrival of Van Persie and the emergence of Welbeck as a versatile forward, says Manchester United are not talking about the title and are only taking things one match at a time.

"We have to forget about that [when United could win the title], the striker commented. "We'll think about West Ham [on Wednesday] and then the next game.

"We are working very hard in training and doing what the gaffer wants us to so we can put in a performance on the pitch."

Fans of Manchester United will be hoping their team returns to the goalscoring form that has allowed them to dominate in the Premier League this term.
