Javier Hernandez capped the best week of his year so far on loan at Real Madrid with a wonderful brace against Celta Vigo in their 4-2 victory.
The Mexican striker’s finishing instincts were really on show for both of the goals.
His first came off the back of some great link-up play before a smart finish under the goalkeeper and his second saw him create space with movement, take down a lofted through ball with an excellent touch and steer his shot out of the goalkeepers reach.
That puts Chicharito on three goals in his last two appearances for Madrid when you include his winner in the Champions League quarter-final over Atletico Madrid.
For a striker who has endured a long, hard season with very few starts and goals, it’s the confidence boost he would have been desperately seeking.
Now, with Madrid in the semi-final and both Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema remaining injury concerns, Chicharito has all of a sudden become an important asset for Carlo Ancelotti.
Instead of having to sit on the periphery, Chicharito is taking centre stage once more which is great news for Manchester United and is being praised all over Spain for his recent performances.
Either it will bring him back to Man United in great form or, the more likely option, it will drive other clubs interest in the striker ahead of an expected exit from Old Trafford this year.
