Javier Hernández has insisted Manchester United are relishing their remaining fixtures as the hunt for the Premier League title reaches its climax.

The 23-year-old was a second-half substitute in the Red Devils’ 1-0 victory over Fulham on Monday night, and the result pushed United three points clear of second-placed Manchester City.

“It’s a part of the season that all the players want to be involved in,” Hernández told ESPN.

“It’s a long season so these final few games are more emotional for everyone, but we have a big chance to win the Premier League again.”

United still face a difficult trip to Eastlands, and welcome Aston Villa and Everton to Old Trafford in April.

But the Mexican striker is convinced Sir Alex Ferguson’s side can win their remaining fixtures.

“We’re in a great position because it depends on us – if we win all our games, we’ll win the league,” added Hernández.

“We’re not in Europe so we’ll probably be a little bit fitter, because we’re only playing each weekend and have long weeks to rest and prepare for each game.”
