Hernandez shouldn't sit on the bench

Published 4 Comments

Javier Hernandez should be playing week-in-week-out. Instead the player, known as the 'Little Pea', only plays second fiddle at Manchester United and is currently last in the pecking order of strikers. 

Hernandez is a unique striker with predatory instincts, good movement off the ball and his small but agile frame ensures that he is a constant live-wire in the box.

On top of that, his goals-per-minutes, shot conversion and shooting accuracy is better than his fellow strike partners, including Robin van Persie, which says enough about his efficiency in front of goal and how underrated he is.

He could play a key role at near enough any other Premier League club. 

For this reason, if he continues to be 'overlooked' at United, it would be best for him to seek playing time elsewhere and there are plenty of suitors, such as Chelsea and Arsenal, who would be delighted to have him in their ranks.

Chelsea, especially considering how short of goals they've been thus far this season, are in serious need of a 'goal poacher' at the moment. And Hernandez would be able to do provide that for them by feeding off the scraps and follow-up shots.

After all, no one will no better than Chelsea themselves on how effective the little man is, with Chicharito having a quite remarkable scoring record against the Blues. 

United must use his him or they will end up having to lose him.
