Hernandez wants home comforts

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez says the club cannot afford any more costly slip-ups at home after they went through to the next round of the Europa League despite losing to Ajax.

Hernandez scored after only six minutes against Ajax at Old Trafford on Thursday, a goal which seemed to put United well in control of their Round of 32 tie. But the Red Devils never managed to control the game and the Dutch champions turned the game around to win 2-1, though lost 3-2 on aggregate.

United are in the Europa League largely due to their home performances in the Champions League, in which they drew at home to both FC Basel and Benfica in the group stage.

The pressure is on United as they go toe to toe with Manchester City in the Premier League title race, trailing their rivals by two points. Hernandez is well aware that if they are to succeed at domestically and in Europe they must put things right at home.

He said: "We cannot afford any draws or losses like that in the league. We need to learn from the Ajax game because it is not a good feeling, but we have to look forward and keep working.

"Yes, over 180 minutes we have got through but it is difficult to enjoy because we have conceded two goals at home and lost."

Man United are on the road next, visiting a confident Norwich City side enjoying a fine first season back in the top flight. A win for the Canaries would lift them to within a single point of Liverpool.

Hernandez added: "Norwich will be a difficult game, a new ground for me, but we are aiming to win to keep the pressure on. Everyone feels very confident about the league and we will never give up."
