Hernandez enjoyed winning Man Utd home debut

Javier Hernandez enjoyed his home debut for Manchester United in their 3-0 win over Newcastle United.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has backed the Mexican striker to score goals this season.

"I thought he was a little over-anxious," the manager told MUTV. "He was maybe a little nervous in front of the home crowd, but you can see the qualities he has.

"His understanding of space is very, very good - he'll get us goals."

Hernandez admitted he "enjoyed the game" and was pleased with the result. And he wasn't fazed by his failure to add to the scoreline.

"I understand the most important thing is the team," he said. "It doesn't matter who scores. It was an excellent team performance."
