Javier Hernandez ‘Chicharito’ Balcazar stole the tabloids on July 24, 2017 when he signed a-three-year deal for West Ham United for a fee believed to be around £16 million.
Without a shred of doubt, the Guadalajara born Chicharito has been hugely tipped to hit the grounds running for the Hammers when the new season takes off next weekend.
Chicharito  played for Manchester United from 2010-2015, scoring 37 goals in 103 appearances for the Red Devils.
Below are snippets of Javier Chicharito that you might not know:
• Both Chicharito’s father and grandfather were Mexican internationals, and both participated in World Cups with El Tri.
• Amazingly, Chicharito scored his first goal in a World Cup against France in South Africa 2010, the same team his father scored against 42 years before in Sweden 1958.
• Hernandez was part of the Mexican generation that won the U17 World Cup in 2005, but was cut from the squad only a few weeks before the tournament. The stars of that team, Carlos Vela and Gio dos Santos, also played in the Premier League.
• His favourite dish is the “tortas ahogadas”, a traditional sandwich form his hometown Guadalajara, made with a sort of baguette covered in spicy red sauce.
• His favourite shirt number is 14 because his it was the same one his father used when he was a professional player.
• Chicharito has scored more goals [eight] against Chelsea than any other team in his career. Wigan Athletic is his next favourite opponent, with six goals, followed by Mainz, Eintracht Frankfurt and Stoke City on five.
• In eight career games for Manchester United against the Hammers, he has registered two assists and found the net once himself.
• He is the Mexico national team’s all-time leading goalscorer, after he surpassed Jared Borgetti’s tally of 46 with his strike against Croatia in May of this year.
• Chicharito becomes the third two-time Premier League winner to join the Hammers this summer. His titles came in 2010/11 and 2012/13 with Manchester United – while Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta won the title twice each with Manchester City.
• Chicharito (Little Pea) inherited his nickname from his father “Chícharo” [Pea]. The reason? Both have green eyes, a not so common trait in Mexico.
• Hernandez has also won honours with his national team, claiming the CONCACAF Gold Cup title in 2011 and the CONCACAF Cup in 2015.
• In just two years in Germany, he was named Bundesliga Player of the Month on five occasions – and took the honour three times in a row between November 2015 and January 2016.
• He made a dream start to life in England in his first Premier League spell, scoring on his Manchester United debut as they defeated Chelsea in the FA Community Shield.
• With 37 Premier League goals from 103 matches, with a goal coming every 130.2 minutes, only Sergio Aguero, Thierry Henry, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Adam Le Fondre possess a more lethal strike rate than Chicharito.
