Chicharito earns acclaim

Javier Hernandez was the runaway victor of the ManUtd.com poll for the Man of the Match award against SC Braga.

The Mexican was at his brilliant best against the Portuguese visitors and converted two headers to help the Reds to a 3-2 success which takes the club a huge step closer to qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League. Indeed, he was afforded a standing ovation when being substituted towards the end.

Almost 4,500 fans backed Chicharito as he logged 89 per cent of the vote - just reward for his exertions on Tuesday night.

Tom Cleverley, who provided the cross for the winner, and Wayne Rooney finished second and third respectively.

Thanks to everybody who voted.
