Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson hailed matchwinner Javier Hernandez for Sunday's win over Chelsea.

Ferguson was impressed by Hernandez's killer cameo which may have earned him a place in United's starting XI for Wednesday's Capital One Cup clash at Chelsea.

"He's brilliant in there and he took a lot of punishment, too, there were a lot of tackles against him," Ferguson said.

"But he's such a courageous little lad, such a tough cookie.

"He's always going to be a threat to defenders and he's got the winning goal in an important game."
