Man Utd boss Ferguson: Chicharito has exceeded both my and Scholes expectations

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was delighted seeing Javier Hernandez again score in victory over Chelsea.

Ferguson admits the Mexican has exceeded all expectations.

"Hernandez has exceeded all expectations. He's a real threat," said Ferguson.

"The boy is keen to learn the game and perceptive to information. When he came at first we thought 'give him a year' but he has taken all the chances.

"I remember after Paul Scholes had seen him in training, he said the lad would get 25 goals for us as a sub.

"He's not quite achieved that but there are three games to go!"
