David Moyes has revealed he is happy to see Javier Hernandez scoring goals again for Manchester United.

The 'little pea' scored his first Premier League goal of the season with the winner against Stoke City last weekend, and then netted a brace in the midweek Capital One Cup victory over Norwich City.

Moyes told Manchester United's official club website: "I'm really pleased for Chicha, It's been a slow start for him as he had a difficult summer, coming backwards and forwards to Mexico with all the games they had to play.

"But he's started to do what he's done over the years: score goals. He came off the bench to score the winner [against Stoke] and scored in midweek, so long may that continue."

Hernandez is a fan favourite at the club but has struggled to pin down a starting place at Old Trafford with the stiff competition of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck.

"I think everybody is desperate to get into the first-team and we can see that every day in their training," the Red Devils boss added. "The players have a brilliant attitude, always trying to impress every day.

"We've introduced one or two young players into the team and if any more of them do well, we'll continue to put them in."

Hernandez was an unused substitute as Manchester United beat Fulham 3-1 at Craven Cottage on Saturday, earning Moyes his third win in succession, in the space of a week.
