Javier Hernandez: On target in the FA Cup win over Fulham at Old Trafford

The Mexican has scored 14 goals in just 24 appearances in all competitions this season with his most recent strike coming in last weekend's FA Cup win over Fulham.

But Hernandez is still not always guaranteed to start for Premier League table-topping United due to the presence of superstar squad-mates Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie.

And ahead of Wednesday night's game against Southampton, Ferguson said in The Sun: "It's a terrible dilemma when I've got that lad there.

"Sometimes I leave him out to bring in Robin van Persie but, as I explain to him, we regard him so highly.

"He's a fantastic professional, unbelievable attitude to the game, never stops running or working and every training session is the same.

"So I'm really pleased for him and it is also good to see Wayne back scoring."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
