Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher believes Javier Hernandez will be the next big thing at Old Trafford.
The Mexico international scored United's winning goal in their UEFA Champions League tie against Valencia on Wednesday night, giving the Red Devils a rare European victory in Spain.
The 22-year-old striker has made an instant impact for Sir Alex Ferguson's side since joining the club in a £7million deal from Chivas earlier this year.
And Fletcher anticipates there is more to come from Hernandez, nicknamed 'Little Pea'.
"Javier got his head down and finished it fantastically," said the Scotland captain.
"He showed he is going to be a great player for Manchester United.
"He is young and still getting used to the way we play. But he has come in from Mexico and is a real talent."
The victory at the Mestalla put United back in a more customary position at the head of affairs in Group C, with back-to-back meetings against Turkish champions Bursaspor to look forward to next month.
"We are back in a good position," said Fletcher.
"We were disappointed to draw at home to Rangers and we knew going to Valencia was going to be difficult.
"But we got three points to put us back top of the group.
"The target is always 10 points. That is what it remains."
