He responded by scoring four times in three games: two against Bolivia, then New Zealand and North Korea. His second season in Manchester was not quite so spectacular however and a series of niggling injuries and the emergence of Danny Welbeck ensured that the "Little Pea" did not enjoy a regular spell in the side.

Hernandez was expected to take a while to bed in but after some sensational displays from the substitutes bench, he displaced Dimitar Berbatov as Wayne Rooney's strike partner in the second half of the season.
