You’ve got to get away from Manchester United, they said.

“They” look correct right now, as Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez is absolutely killing it at Bayer Leverkusen. The Mexico star is taking his goal-poaching acumen to a whole new level in the Bundesliga, and added another today.

Eight goals in the past six games now for Javier Hernandez! Leverkusen and Koln are tied at 1-1 over on FS2.
