Fergie Delighted With Strikers

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was full of praise for his strikers after the 4-1 FA Cup win over Fulham on Saturday.

Javier Hernandez netted a brace for the Red Devils while Wayne Rooney also got onto the scoresheet, and Ferguson admits he is spoilt for choice up front.

The United coach had special praise for Hernandez who has now scored 14 goals this campaign even though he often misses out to Robin van Persie when the starting lineup is chosen.

"I am really pleased Wayne has scored and Javier got two," said Ferguson.

"If those two and Robin get to the 20-plus mark, we are really in business."

"Javier got the little rest in the summer and he is getting the benefit," he added.

"It is a terrible dilemma when I have that lad there.

"Sometimes I leave him out to bring in Robin van Persie but I have told him how highly we regard him.

"He is a fantastic professional with an unbelievable attitude to the game.

"He never stops running and working and every training session is the same."
