Hernandez has no goal preference

Javier Hernandez does not worry about the manner in which he scores his goals, but is only focused to continuing to find the net for Manchester United.

The Mexican striker as scored 24 times since signing for United last summer and continues to impress with his clinical finishing.

Hernandez's latest strike settled the fixture against Everton as United ran out 1-0 winners at Goodison Park on Saturday.

However, it has been noted that the 23-year-old has yet to notch a goal for United from outside the 18-yard box - a skill Ruud van Nistelrooy was the absolute master of.

Hernandez, though, is more than happy to continue poaching from close range, as long as it means the Red Devils keep winning.

"I think part of the reason I haven’t done that [score from distance] yet is because of the instructions I receive from Sir Alex," he told Inside United.

"My job is play very high, right on the last man. To be honest, I don’t mind how I score goals – whether or not you score from one metre or from the halfway line, it counts the same. A goal is a goal."
