Javier Hernandez is used to be compared with Manchester United's legendary super sub Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the young striker currently starring off the bench for Sir Alex Ferguson.

While many high paid players at big clubs get into hissy fits over limited game time and being excluded from the starting line-up, Hernandez has always insisted that he is at Old Trafford to help a team rather than his own individual stats.

And so far, that mentality is working for the Mexico international, with his goals as a sub now hitting 10, and second only to the legendary Solskjaer who scored 28 of 126 goals without being in the starting line-up.

"Ole Gunnar Solskjaer," Hernandez said, when the official United website told him one other player had scored more goals as a sub. "I know."

"I don't know what makes me effective as a substitute. I don't have the answer.

"In football you can't always come up with a reason, because of this or that. I don't play any different [whether I start a game or come on as a substitute].

"If I play one minute, 10 minutes or 90 minutes I try to play the same. My mind is always to do my best and help my team. There are some times in the game when we need to score and perhaps I have had a little bit of luck."

Hernandez has always talked of the debt he owes to Sir Alex Ferguson for bringing him to United from Mexico in 2010, and the 23 year old says he hopes to keep contributing to the side and helping them build up the trophies.

"I just want to help my team," he explained. "I don't care if I'm on the bench. Last year I was on the bench at the start and then I was in the team towards the end of the season. The gaffer has the answers.

"Every player in every team wants to play as many minutes as possible, but I don't care if I start or I'm a substitute. I just want to enjoy it. I am living a dream to play for Manchester United."
