Late winner secures Man United victory over Valencia

Latest update : 2010-09-30

New Manchester United signing Javier Hernandez (pictured) rescued the Premier League giants from a goalless draw with Valencia FC on Wednesday, securing a late winner just minutes away from the final whistle.

REUTERS - Javier Hernandez came off the bench to snatch a 1-0 win for Manchester United at Valencia in Champions League Group C on Wednesday.

In an uninspiring game with few clear chances, the Mexican striker swept Federico Macheda's low cross past Cesar Sanchez in the 85th minute.
 
Neither side showed much creativity on a pleasantly warm night at the Mestalla, although Valencia made a better fist of things in the second half, roared on by the passionate home support.
 
Strikers Dimitar Berbatov for United and Roberto Soldado for the home side cut lonely figures up front, although Berbatov forced a smart save from Sanchez when through on the Valencia keeper soon after halftime.
