Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez scored the opening goal for Manchester United against Liverpool in the Capital One Cup third round match at Old Trafford this evening.

Hernandez, who made a rare appearance starting for United, scored for the Red Devils in the 46th minute after hitting the ball first time from a Wayne Rooney corner kick. beIN SPORT co-commentator Ray Hudson compared the art of Chicharito’s jump and graceful strike to dancer Rudolf Nureyev.

The goal and exemplary performance by Hernandez, who was substituted in the 74th minute, should ease Manchester United’s fears this weekend if Robin van Persie isn’t fit to return against West Bromwich Albion.

    Ugh…as a keeper, I hate those low, shorter corners. You can’t do anything except hope your teammates clear it and mark up. Not only did they lose Chicarito (which happens), but Gerrard should have headed it clear.

  2. Ryan M. says:

    Yeah, Stevie whiffed on that one…but Enrique just decided to give up marking.

  3. eltricolor2014 says:

    Gerrard took a step forward to clear the ball maybe thinking that someone was rushing behind him. A superb goal from Chicharito. Great movement. Wellbeck offers added defense and speed (not that it mattered against City) and Chicharito offers speed and goals.
