VIDEO: Manchester United loanee scores two screamers in emphatic Madrid win

Javier Hernandez

Javier Hernandez scored two fantastic goals in Real Madrid's 8-2 victory over Deportivo La Coruna.

Manchester United's Javier Hernandez is certainly enjoying his start to life as a Real Madrid player. The Mexican international notched his first two goals for Los Blancos in only his second La Liga appearance, this weekend.

The Spanish giants overcame Deportivo La Coruna by an emphatic 8-2 scoreline on Saturday afternoon. Hernandez had been on the pitch for just 11 minutes, before netting his new club's 7th and 8th of the match.

His first was the pick of the bunch, a gorgeous left-footed half-volley from the left side of the penalty area to the top left corner.

However, his second was only slightly less spectacular, a powerful right-footed shot from outside the 18-yard-box in stoppage time.

These goals will certainly give United manager Louis Van Gaal something to consider. If Hernandez can continue to score in this fashion throughout the remainder of his loan spell, he could become a valuable asset to his parent club next term.
