Javier Hernandez has payed tribute to Manchester United strike-partner Wayne Rooney after another stunning display in the Barclays Premier League.

The England international forward netted his second successive hat-trick for the Red Devils in a 5-0 win, producing another fine all-round performance as the focal point of Sir Alex Ferguson's attack.

After playing alongside Danny Welbeck for the start of the season, Hernandez took his first chance alongside Rooney with a brace himself, but was happy to pay tribute to the three-goal man.

"Wayne Rooney is unbelievable. He can do anything on a pitch," said the Mexican international.

"There is a lot of excitement about this team. Everyone knows about Bolton but we played very well. We created chances and scored goals.

"Scoring early settled us down. Once you are up in front, the other team needs to go towards your goal. Then you can start to attack more."

His first start since recovering completely from a concusion sustained during the pre-season tour of America, Hernandez was happy to get 90 minutes under his belt and hopes to keep helping the team gain more points.

"Scoring goals gives any striker confidence. But the most important thing for me was that I managed to play 90 minutes for the first time because I have been out for two months.

"I could have scored three myself but I only play to help my team. I will keep working for that to enable us to get more points."
