Manchester United star Javier Hernandez has shrugged off his lack of long-range goals.

Chicharito is yet to score for United outside the opposition penalty area.

But he told manutd.com: "You never know! I think part of the reason I haven’t done that yet is because of the instructions I receive from Sir Alex. My job is to 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."
