VIDEO: Mexican striker Hernandez bags brace for West Ham
Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez has his first and second Premier League goals since 2014 to open his account as a West Ham United player, though the Hammers lost 3-2 to Southampton at St. Mary’s on Saturday.
Both arrived in fitting fashion, and with West Ham down to 10 men.
Mexico’s first-class poacher was in his office to finish with ease after Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster pushed a Michail Antonio shot onto his path, and then did it again in the closing stages.

Hernandez raced past his marker to finish and give the 10-man Irons a chance at a St. Mary’s comeback following a red card to Marko Arnautovic.
Dusan Tadic, Charlie Austin, and Manolo Gabbiadini scored for Saints.
