Man United vs West Ham: Injury Report, Match Preview, Prediction



The curtain is raised on the new Premier League season as Manchester United host West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday. The main storylines surrounding this one relate to Javier Hernandez, who returned to the Hammers this summer after two years in the Bundesliga. Before Chicharito’s stint with Bayer Leverkusen, he was a United player for five years, four in a Red Devils shirt, one on loan with Real Madrid.

Hernandez looked back upon his four years at Old Trafford with warm memories. He said there is “nothing negative” at all about it. The emotions expressed here are in stark contrast to the epic rant Javier Hernandez gave a couple days ago in response to a national teammate’s move to Major League Soccer being question.

The discussion led to Hernandez calling out the manner in which he feels Mexican players are perceived and portrayed worldwide.
