Chicharito Scores Twice As Manchester United Rolls

One thing is for sure. Javier "Chicharito" Hernández makes the most of his opportunities.

Starting in place of top scorer Dimitar Berbatov, Hernández scored just 17 minutes into the game on a low cross from Nani as Manchester United went on to win 4-0 and stay four points ahead of Arsenal in English Premier League play.

Hernández is the first Mexican player to play for Manchester United and "Chicharito" has not let them down, scoring early and often.

Paired with Wayne Rooney, both attackers struck again later as well.

The Mexican fútbol star scored the second goal of the game at the 74-minute mark as he and Rooney passed it back and forth leading to the insurance goal.

A string of substitutions saw Berbatov enter the game and an unselfish pass from the Bulgarian gave Rooney a tap-in goal 10 minutes later, The Guardian reported.

Brazilian Fábio Da Silva, who was substituted late, scored in the 87th minute on his first touch of the game.

Manchester United plays their next game at Chelsea on March 1. Chelsea is in fifth place with 45 points.
