Manchester United fans react on Twitter to Javier Hernandez's performance for Real Madrid

Javier Hernandez trick for Mexico

Manchester United fans were pleased to see Javier Hernandez net against Atletico Madrid.

Manchester United loanee Javier Hernandez scored the all important goal as Real Madrid progressed to the Champions League semi-final.

The Mexican international netted in the 87th minute against a resilient Atletico Madrid to give the defending champions a 1-0 aggregate win.

It was the first goal he has scored in the Champions League in six matches this season for Real Madrid, as he repaid manager Carlo Ancelotti's faith for starting him.

The Italian manager deserved credit for keeping the goal poacher on the pitch, after he spurned two earlier chances, failing to hit the target.

It was a goal made in Manchester, with former United icon Cristiano Ronaldo splitting the defence with an incisive run and laying on the assist for Chicharito.

It was just the sixth goal Hernandez has scored for Real this season, in 25 appearances, which have come mostly as a substitute.

That's still more goals than current United forward Radamel Falcao has scored this season, as his loan spell similarly fails to live up to expectations.

The Colombian however blew his big chance to make an impact against Chelsea at the weekend when handed an opportunity by Louis van Gaal.

Hernandez faces an uphill task to convince the United boss he is deserving of a future at Old Trafford after failing to win him round the first time.

Fans reacted with delight to see the 26-year-old score the winner, and largely had good things to say about the striker. Here is a look at a selection of comments from Twitter from Manchester United supporters after his late winner...
