David Moyes believes that striker Javier Hernandez has a role to play at the club, despite worries about his future.

The Guardian reports that there had been some concerns about the Mexican forward due to the way he was treated at Manchester United under the Scotsman.

It was difficult for him at United because I had Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Shinji Kagawa, so there was lots of competition. But he’ll be treated the same here – if he’s playing well and scoring, no problems. If he’s not, it will be the same as the rest.

During Moyes’ brief stint at Old Trafford, Hernandez was unable to break into the first-team regularly and played a bit-part role at the club.

Since joining from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer Hernandez has struggled to make an impact at the London Stadium but has scored four times in the Premier League.

Despite Moyes’ comments, Hernandez may see his game time limited after he sustained a hamstring injury while on international duty with Mexico.

However, the severity of the injury is still unknown at this time.
