Mexican striker Javier Hernandez is confident that Manchester United will reclaim the Premier League title from Manchester City next season having seen their rivals claim victory on the last day of last season.

The Red Devils have a reputation for scoring late goals but it was City who were crowned champions - on goal difference having coming from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers in injury time - after United had defeated Sunderland 1-0.

Hernandez admitted "it was difficult to believe", as they saw their title hopes evaporate in such dramatic fashion.

He told the club's official website: "For so many years that type of game was a fable of Manchester United, with goals in the last minute [to win big games], and sometimes it is part of life to experience the bad moments like this one.

"It was a very strange day because in the space of one minute we thought that the title was going to be ours, and then City scored twice, and that's it.

"When you win you learn to keep working hard in order to keep doing the things you did to win the title.

"And when you lose, you need to learn from the mistakes you made. It's not like one, two or three people are guilty of making mistakes - it's a team game and every player wants to do their best to help the team to win trophies.

"I think we all learned a lot from last season and we're confident we can come back this season.

"I don't want to be obsessed with scoring goals, I don't want to be only that player who only scores goals, and if I score goals I've played well and if I didn't score goals I played badly.

"If the goals are coming then good, but as I've always said, I would swap every one of my goals for a title with Manchester United."
