Manchester United manager David Moyes heaps praises on Javier Hernandez and insisted that Darren Fletcher won’t be rushed back into the squad.
Manchester United have made a slow start to their season under new manager David Moyes and are currently 8th in the league table. But the reigning Premier League champions are on a six match unbeaten streak and have won their last three matches in all competitions. United travel to London to face Fulham, and with Liverpool and Arsenal facing each other this weekend, it will be the perfect opportunity for David Moyes’ men to close the gap at the top.
David Moyes has stressed on the important of maintaining this momentum while talking to the press ahead of the upcoming match against Fulham.
“It’s a gap we have to try to work to get closer to.
“We’ll take one game at a time and try to start getting a bit closer to the top end.
“That’s the plan but there’s a long way to go.
“We’ve started to put together one or two half decent results and hopefully that starts to build a bit of momentum.
“We’ve been a little bit up and down at the start of the season, winning one, losing one, so we’re hoping to get a bit more consistency and then our form follows with that.” – The Manchester United manager said.
The former Everton manager also heaped praise on Javier Hernandez, who has been on a fine goal scoring form recently. The Mexican international came off the bench to score the winner against Stoke City last weekend and followed it up with a wonderful brace against Norwich City in the League Cup.
“I’ve been really pleased for Chicharito, because it’s been a slow start for him.It’s been difficult summer, coming back and then back and forth to Mexico with all the games he’s had to play.
“But he’s started to do what he’s done over the years, which is score goals. He came off the bench and scored tge winner against Stoke and scored two in midweek, so long may that continue.” – He added.
Moyes also revealed that both Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic are in contention for a start against Fulham after featuring in the midweek clash against Norwich City.
“They’re both very close. They played against Premier League opposition in midweek,” said Moyes. “They both played 90 minutes so I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t be ready for selection or be involved.” – He told the press.
The biggest news for Manchester United this week was the return of Darren Fletcher, who played for 67 minutes for the U-21 side on Monday. But Moyes insisted that they won’t rush him back as they look to avoid any reoccurrence of the injury.
“His training has been coming along, he’s looking much better in himself and is looking stronger every day. But we won’t rush him. We don’t want any setbacks with him coming back so we’ll take our time but it’s great to see him back playing.” – Moyes revealed.
