Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez hails the ability that Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney possess.

Manchester United's Javier Hernandez has described fellow strikers Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney as "complete players".

At times this season the form of Van Persie and Rooney has kept Mexican international Hernandez on the United bench.

However, rather than be disappointed by his spells out of the team, the 24-year-old has instead insisted that he is always learning from the pair.

"Every striker and every player has something they bring to the team but Robin and Wazza are complete players," he told the club's official website. "They have certain attributes that are better than others, of course, but the reason they are so good is that they do everything so well – touch, movement, passing, finishing.

"It is easy to learn from them because it's so obvious how good they are. They are two of the best strikers in the world."

Hernandez has been tipped to start alongside Rooney during tonight's FA Cup replay against West Ham United.
