The 25-year-old Mexican international joined United in 2010 and has struggled to establish himself as a regular starter. He has been eased back into David Moyes' plans after the summer's Confederation Cup by starting two games this season.
Chicharito enjoyed a reputation of a poacher and impact player when under Moyes' predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson, he is still determined to change that perception as he wants to secure a starting role with the Premier League champions.
I strive for that. I am working towards that, earning a spot as a starter. I know that my performance on the pitch will allow me to achieve that goal someday either here or elsewhere for any other club.
I am going on four years here and really, like I have always said, I am happy to be able to play for one of the best clubs in the world, doing my best every single day to earn more minutes on the pitch.
I just need to be given more opportunities to showcase what I can do, because all of us want to be able to contribute our part so this team can win championships.
Hernandez also commented on his attacking teammates, saying he has no issue with the competition and fighting for his chance.
What better way to compete anywhere in the world than to compete with them?
The competition inside the team has always been really healthy and I think that helps the team a lot, because there are so many quality players that every one of them wants to earn a starting spot.
The practices and matches coming up will force us to step up and help the team grow both at an individual and collective level.
