Javier Hernandez believes Manchester United’s luck has changed in recent weeks after a run of four successive wins.

The defending Premier League champions benefited from a kind ricochet off the Mexican which teed up Danny Welbeck to score the winner in a 1-0 victory over Norwich City at Carrow Road.

We’re hoping to transfer our away record to Old Trafford

And Hernandez, who has scored one goal in 11 top-flight appearances this season, wants the Red Devils to transfer their recent away form to their Old Trafford clashes.

“Perhaps we are getting a bit of luck that we didn’t have in other games,” Hernandez told MUTV ahead of their New Year’s Day meeting with Tottenham Hotspur.

“For example, we’re creating chances and scoring goals like the last one against Norwich when we had a little bit of luck.

“We take that luck as, in the first part of the season, we didn’t have that. For example, against Everton, they did play a very good game and had one or two chances in the first half but we played better in the second half until they scored late on.

“We were in control of the game against Newcastle and created chances but didn’t score. They had one chance and scored.

“So we’re hoping to transfer our away record to Old Trafford.”
