As one of a number of changes, Chicharito was delighted with the impact he was able to make during a tireless display at St James' Park.
"It's difficult when we are not playing too much," he admitted to MUTV. "To give a performance like this as a whole team is pleasing because you see players like Shinji, me and Juan Mata, Antonio Valencia at right-back and Adnan Januzaj coming in. It was a good performance and a good result.
"We're all ready and we want to make the gaffer have a difficult position. We all want to play in the game at Bayern Munich and we proved that today."
