Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs is confident new teammate Javier Hernandez will be a big influence this season.

There was nothing smooth about the Mexican's Community Shield goal - United's second - as his mis-hit shot flew in off his face - but Giggs views Hernandez as a major plus in United's quest for honours.

"Javier has the extra quality that makes a difference," he said.

"Towards the end of last season we needed that player who could come off the bench and change a game.

"Now we have strengthened and hopefully that will give us an edge.

"Javier is a goal-poacher. His overall movement and ability to find space is really good.

"Hopefully he can get a lot of goals this year. He has started pre-season really well and I am sure he will be a great player for us."
