Manchester United boss delighted with Hernandez winner

Published 3 Comments

David Moyes was full of praise for Javier Hernandez after the Mexican striker earned Manchester United a 1-0 victory against rivals Liverpool in the Capital One cup.

Hernandez broke the deadlock early on in the second half from a Wayne Rooney corner to set up a 4th round tie against Norwich next month as the Red Devils put their derby disaster against Manchester City behind them with a much-needed win.

"The movement is great for the goal, that's what Chicharito is all about," said Moyes afterwards. "He finds space so well. Both games against Liverpool have been tight and have been settled by a goal from a set-piece."

The Scot added: "We had to try and come out and show something a bit better than we had done (against Liverpool and City). We had to bounce back and I thought it was a good result tonight.

"It's given me a chance to see some players I haven't seen much and it's given me food for thought.

Moyes made eight changes to the team that succumbed to a 4-1 defeat against Manchester City on Sunday, with Liverpool following suit with a host of new faces, including Luis Suarez who made his return from his ten game suspension for biting.

While all eyes were on the Uruguayan, it was Chelsea loanee Victor Moses who had Liverpool's best chance of the game, but he could only aim his free header straight at David de Gea in the Manchester United goal.

Liverpool could find no way back into the game and almost fell even further behind as both Rooney and Shinji Kagawa going close before the final whistle went.

Of his side's 4th round tie against Norwich at Old Trafford, Moyes said: "You really only want home draws, Norwich are a good side. We'll give them the respect they deserve."
