Javier Hernandez
Hernandez came off the bench for United against Chelsea, and scored the all-important equaliser.

Javier Hernandez has heralded Ryan Giggs being given a new contract at Manchester United, with the young striker insisting that the side will fight to the last day of the season for the title.

United are currently second in the Premier League table, but their fightback from 3-0 down against Chelsea showed just how much fight the Red Devils are willing to put up to first-placed City as they aim to topple their cross-town rivals.

Hernandez scored the third goal of the match, and after coming off the bench, looked so dangerous on the pitch that Ferguson admitted afterwards that he should have started the Mexico international.

But he insists that he is only interested in contributing to the team, rather than taking personal plaudits, as the season draws closer to an end.

"My goal at Chelsea was very important for all the team, not only me," Javier told the official United website. "It was a great comeback, to be losing 3-0 away at Chelsea. It was very important. In the future, that point could change the title. So we are very happy.

"We are fighting for the title and will do that all season. Every Manchester United fan, all the players, the staff and the gaffer, want to fight. We want to win the league."

Hernandez also heralded Giggs' new deal with United, which will see the 38 year old play for another season after this one at least.

"It is unbelievable news," he said. "Ryan is a great player. He is a legend here. He is a very good example for football players all over the world, not only those at this club. We are delighted about it. Of course you learn from him. It doesn't matter that I'm a striker and he isn't."

Speculation is now mounting that Paul Scholes may follow Giggs and sign a new deal at United, with the midfielder coming out of retirement at the age of 37 in January.
