Javier Hernandez's Champions League performance against Braga was majestic.
He started and sealed Manchester United's 3-2 comeback victory. He also worked extremely hard across his 80-minute appearance.
Little Pea produced three shots on target—more than any other player. His movement took advantage of minimal spaces on a congested pitch.
Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney went about their work in a regimented fashion. As they struggled to break through a disciplined Braga defence, their Mexican counterpart made the most out of scraps.
United travel to Stamford Bridge in a clash between the Premier League's current top two.
If Sir Alex Ferguson's men are to stay above their City rivals, Hernandez's ability to do things differently could be key.
The striker scored a dramatic equaliser in the corresponding fixture last year.
United's leaky defence looks set to struggle in London, indicating Hernandez might need to lace up his shooting (or should that be heading?) boots once more.
