Stoke 1 Manchester Utd 2
Stoke City 1 Manchester United 2, Britannia Stadium, English Premier League, October 24, 2010. Sir Alex Ferguson was well and truly delighted with the performance of Mexico international forward Javier Hernandez in the victory against Stoke City at Britannia Stadium. Chicharito clocked up two goals in the 27th and 85th minutes of the game respectively to secure a 2-1 triumph over The Potters.
Javier Hernandez, who had officially joined Manchester United for an undisclosed transfer fee at the end of the 2009-10 season, was handed his Premier League baptism by Sir Alex Ferguson when the twenty-two-year-old striker entered the field as a second half replacement for fellow frontman Wayne Rooney in a 3-0 success against recently promoted Newcastle United at Old Trafford on the opening day of the 2010-11 campaign, and he scored his first Premiership goal for his new club in a 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion at The Theatre of Dreams on the 16th of October 2010. Sir Alex Ferguson: “We are just thankful that Javier Hernandez came up with the winner. He has good instinct. He knows where the goal lies. It is the kind of goal Manchester United score over the years. A late goal met by incredible enthusiasm by the supporters.” Stoke City Team: Thomas Sorensen, Danny Collins, Abdoulaye Faye, Robert Huth, Ryan Shawcross, Rory Delap, Matthew Etherington, Marc Wilson, Jermaine Pennant, Jon Walters, Kenwyne Jones.
