Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson hailed matchwinner Javier Hernandez after victory over Newcastle United.

The Mexican swept home the final goal of the seven goal thriller last night.

"We had a lot of decisions against us in the first half and sometimes that can demoralise a team. But the players didn't give in and that's a great quality to have. I'm pleased that we came back three times after going down three times and then scoring the winner," said Ferguson.

"Chicharito deservedly got the winner, his movement and courage were unbelievable. He and van Persie were absolutely phenomenal, I thought."
