Javier Hernandez has dismissed claims that he could be the new Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.

The Manchester United striker certainly has the same knack in and around the penalty area for grabbing important goals.

The Mexican scored the decisive goal against Everton last weekend to repair some of the damage caused by the recent 6-1 derby day humiliation by Premier League leaders Manchester City.

And he came on as a substitute on Wednesday as United beat Otelul Galati 2-0 in the Champions League, a competition Sir Alex Ferguson's team are 9.00 to win this season.

Hernandez's attributes have been likened to Solskjaer's by United's coaching staff, but 'Little Pea' insists he is not comfortable with the comparisons, having now studied the player who was nicknamed 'The Baby-Faced Assassin' by United fans a decade ago.

Chicharito, who will expect to be part of the Red Devils' attack who take on Sunderland this weekend at Old Trafford, insists he is happy being his 'own man'.

United are 8.50 to beat the Black Cats 2-1 with Hernandez 5.00 to open the scoring.

The striker says: "Ole was a legend at United, just an unbelievable player. When all the people made those comparisons, the only thing I can say is that I'm not even ten per cent of Ole.

"He was incredible. Just turn on any old footage of him - he was special. To be honest, I don't like comparisons very much. I think everyone is different and deserves to be judged on their own."
