Following the game, Sir Alex Ferguson was full of praise for our Mexican striker.
“Hernandez did it again,” said Ferguson. “When you see the goal he was strangled by Martin Skrtel but he managed to free himself. His goals-per-game ratio is fantastic. You always think he can score. That is the great thing about him.”
Chicharito has now scored 9 goals in 21 substitute appearances for United, meaning he has scored in 43% of all games he’s played in after coming off the bench. His current record is 2.3 times better than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s.
