'Little Pea' Hernandez in love with Man U's 'never say die' attitude

London, Jan 16(ANI): Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has said he is in love with team's never say die attitude, adding no team would like to face the English giants on their path to FA Cup glory.

United host West Ham United on Wednesday in a third-round FA Cup replay after snatching a last-gasp draw with a Robin van Persie equaliser at Upton Park in their previous encounter, the Sun reports.

It was once again testimony of the United's never-say-die spirit, which has propelled them seven points clear at the top of the Premier League and the 19-times league champions have won eight league games in which they have trailed this season.

Hernandez said it's the mentality of this club that you never give up because there is always time to make a difference.

The Mexican striker added that if they are losing 2-0 or even 3-0, in their mind they think that if they get one, then they will get two and it they get two, then they can get a third.

Hernandez said it's all about belief, adding that its in their history and manager Sir Alex Ferguson always tells them to never give up and always fight until the end.

Little Pea, as he is famously known as, said he is in love with the late wins his team achieves so many times, adding the atmosphere during a last-gasp win is amazing.

Hernandez proved Van Persie does not have the copyright on last-gasp goals by grabbing the winner in the amazing 4-3 Boxing Day win over Newcastle United.

The little Mexican is United's second-top scorer with 12 and Van Persie has 21, while Wayne Rooney's tally is eight. (ANI)
