With the sparkling performance from Van Persie, Rooney and Welbeck against Stoke in mind, Javier Hernandez is looking to crash the party, scoring a brace tonight against Braga to offer a timely reminder of his ability.
And it wasn’t just his goals that caught the manager’s eye as he said after the game:
“Chicharito has such great enthusiasm for the game and he trains magnificently.
“He’s got me thinking, I must say that. He and van Persie and Rooney and Welbeck… I don’t know what to do with them to be honest with you.”
