VIDEO: Javier Hernandez scores his first goal of the season

by Sam Peoples

Javier Hernandez got himself back into scoring ways with an excellent headed winner against Costa Rica last night.

The Mexican has found his game time restricted at Manchester United this year because of the form of Robin van Persie and Sir Alex’s preference to use Danny Welbeck ahead of him.

However, an impressive last 20 minutes against Southampton showed a Hernandez who is hungry and ready to get back into the first team.

With Robin van Persie potentially out with a thigh strain, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Hernandez getting his first start of the season against Wigan this Saturday.
