Hernandez began his career in 2006, playing for the Mexican club Guadalajara, before becoming the first Mexican player to join Manchester United in July 2010. He spent the 2014/15 season on loan at Real Madrid, then moved permanently to Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen in August 2015.

A Mexican international, he is his country's all-time leading goalscorer (with 48 to his name, at time of writing). He made his debut for Mexico in September 2009 in a match against Colombia and is close to reaching a century of appearances for his country.

Hernandez is commonly known by his nickname 'Chicharito' (aka 'Little Pea'), which he wears on his shirt.

 

2016/17 Match Notes & Ratings

1-1 v Burnley (a) 14th October 2017
by David Fletcher

Was very affected by Carroll's dissmissal, having to take a more defensive role. However he did hold up the ball well and showed his skill on a few occasions.

1-0 v Swansea City (h) 30th September 2017
by Staff Writer

When playing out of position it's ubderstandable to see that his performances have been below par in the last few games. Has quality on the ball and an eye for goal which should incite the manager to play him down the middle as opposed to on the wing.

2-3 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 23rd September 2017

I donít know if itís by instruction, a function of the system or just down to the player himself but with Carroll on the pitch it seems a bit of a waste to have him stuck out on the touchline. The Foster incident showed how this could be developed as a partnership with just a little thought.

2-0 v Huddersfield Town (h) 11th September 2017
by David Fletcher

As always, pressed high up the pitch and held the ball up well. Had one decent opportunity and unfortunately was denied by the crossbar. Very surprising to many to see him replaced relatively early in the second half.

0-3 v Newcastle United (a) 26th August 2017

2-0 v Cheltenham Town (a) 23rd August 2017
by David Fletcher

(Replaced Sakho) Very good holding up the ball and was full of energy popping up in all sorts of positions.

2-3 v Southampton (a) 19th August 2017
by Gordon Thrower

Great poaching skills which gives cause for optimism in the future.

0-4 v Manchester United (a) 13th August 2017
by David Fletcher

Gave his absolute all for the team, he still had belief even though the rest did not. He was forever pressing, closing down and trying to receive the ball high up the pitch in order to get involved more. Hardly got any service from his team mates. He will be expecting much more from them in the matches to come.
