Chicha storms player poll

There was only ever going to be one winner.

Javier Hernandez, sent on as a half-time substitute at Villa Park, engineered a remarkable Reds comeback on Saturday to ensure Sir Alex's men secured all three points and opened up a four-point gap (reduced to two following Manchester City's win on Sunday) at the top of the table.

The Mexican scored two goals (he claims three) and was heavily involved in United's third as Sir Alex's men battled back from 2-0 down to win 3-2.

It's no surprise, then, that fans have voted Hernandez ManUtd.com's Man of the Match.

The striker, who's now scored in each of his last five appearances (seven goals), garnered an incredible 97 per cent of the vote. Robin van Persie finished second on 1.5 per cent.
