Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has been on a terrific goalscoring run for his new club, Bayer Leverkusen.
Hernandez’s strike against FC Koln this past weekend meant he has now scored as many as eight goals in just 18 days as he is quickly making a name for himself in Germany. The Mexican has become a crucial part of Leverkusen’s squad this campaign and will be delighted with how well his move has gone so far.
At the same time, Man United are struggling in the final third as they look short of ideas in front of goal. Three goalless draws in a row in October proved that the Reds definitely do have a problem going forward as they lacked the creativity to make good chances for their strikers.
Hernandez could have had an impact at United this season, with his trademark poaching and finishing. There is no doubting his ability to score goals but it may not be what the Reds are missing right now. United have the likes of Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and wayne Rooney who are all good finishers themselves but it is making the chances thathas prove to be a problem.
Hernandez could have been the one to apply the finishing touches to United’s moves this season but he would certainly have struggled as the Reds failed to create enough chances. The 27-year-old thrives on goalscoring opportunities and with United unable to carve out many opportunities, it is hard to see whether Hernandez would fit into the current side.
