Owen: Hard work will bring Hernandez success

Michael Owen has warned Manchester United's new fans' hero Javier Hernandez that he cannot afford to rest on his laurels.The 22-year-old Mexican has shouldered the goalscoring responsibility in the last two games to give United supporters something to cheer about after the trauma of last week's Wayne Rooney saga.Hernandez, nicknamed 'Chicharito' which means 'Little Pea', scored twice at Stoke on Sunday and was hailed by United boss Sir Alex Ferguson after hitting an excellent winner in last night's 3-2 Carling Cup win over Wolves.Owen, who has just suffered another injury setback with a hamstring problem that will keep him out of action for several weeks, said Hernandez should not take his success for granted.Owen told BBC Radio Five: "It's obviously early days for him but he's made a really good impression at the club, scored goals in the last couple of games."He's young, sharp and a good finisher. He seems to be thriving, he's always got a smile on his face, he enjoys his football and the fans have taken to him already. So far so good, but, as I know, football changes in a week or whatever."
