Javier Hernandez says Tuesday was a great day for Manchester United as they go in search of a 20th league title.
The Mexican got on the scoresheet as United beat Stoke 2-0 to go level on points at the top of the table, with Manchester City losing 1-0 at Everton.
Whilst the 24-year-old says the results might not matter come May, he admits it was a good night for the Red Devils.
He told MUTV: "Against Stoke we did a great job against a very difficult team. It was a great night for Manchester United, with City dropping points and us winning against a very difficult team.
"Will it be very significant [in the title race]? Maybe not, but it was a very good night for Manchester United fans."
With Wayne Rooney in the stands, Hernandez took his first ever penalty for United, which he duly converted.
And the Mexican says he would be happy to continue taking the kicks, even when Rooney comes back.
He added: "There are a lot of players here who can take penalties. Sometimes it's Wazza, sometimes it's Ryan Giggs. Today it was me and Berbatov.
"I take them for Mexico and I'll be ready if [United] ask me again. If they want me to shoot one, I'll shoot."
