It is frightening to think what might have been achieved if Hernandez had not suffered concussion on the pre-season tour of North America that prevented the Mexican playing a full part in the opening games of this term.
However, now he has made a full recovery, the striker is eager to make up for lost time.
"Scoring goals gives any striker confidence," he said.
"But the most important thing for me was that I managed to play 90 minutes for the first time because I have been out for two months.
"I could have scored three myself but I only play to help my team. I will keep working for that to enable us to get more points."
