West Ham striker continues to persevere.
West Ham United striker Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez has had a frustrating start to the season and finds himself on the outside looking in under David Moyes.
Hernandez's form has been inconsistent and he has failed to meet the pre-season predictions which saw his acquisition hailed as one of the biggest bargains of the summer.
Injuries have not helped, and he currently finds himself sitting on the bench while Marko Arnautovic leads the line.
Hernandez had a tough time at Manchester United under Moyes, and he has to prove to his manager he deserves his place.
He wasted a big opportunity last week when he missed a close range header against Arsenal, but will hope to get the nod against the Gunners in the Carabao Cup this evening.
The striker is not giving up, and sent a message on Twitter yesterday making this clear.

Under a bad manager, being played out of position in an out of form team, The best of you at West Ham is yet to come, I love you Chicha x— Marko Arnautovic (@BenWHUnited) December 18, 2017
Hernandez's chance will come during this busy period of the season when rotation is crucial.
As his supporters have been quick to point out - he needs to take advantage of it, and make it tough for David Moyes to leave him out.
