United fans react on Twitter to Hernandez performance: 'Letting him go would be a big mistake'

Manchester United won 4-0 at Newcastle United on Saturday, with Javier Hernandez getting on the score-sheet, but what did the fans make of his performance?

It is fair to say that Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has not enjoyed the best of seasons. Despite 20 appearances in the Premier League to date, most of those have come from the bench and he has a goal-scoring return of just four.

Considering how prolific the Mexican sharpshooter was when he first arrived at Old Trafford, that is something of a comedown.

But against Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon Hernandez got the chance to start, score and shine as David Moyes' side ran out 4-0 winners.

Hernandez set up the second goal of the afternoon for Juan Mata, before Shinji Kagawa turned provider for Chicharito, and the latter's stats for the match as a whole were pretty impressive as he scored one, set up one, played one key pass and had three scoring attempts.

The result sent United back up to sixth in the table, but it is the Champions League United and their fans will really have their eyes on.  And Hernandez will be just one of many players wondering if he will feature against the holders Bayern Munich.

There are certainly plenty out there who think the Mexican international should be given that chance, as we found out when we took to Twitter after the match.
