Man Utd striker Chicharito to undergo knee tests

Manchester United striker Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez will have tests to ascertain the extent of the knee injury sustained on Wednesday.

The 25-year old suffered the problem while on duty for Mexico when he collided with Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama in their friendly in Atlanta which ended in a 0-0 draw.

Hernandez was subbed off at half-time and although he will require tests, Mexico team doctor Jose Guadalupe Vazquez has allayed fears of any serious damage.

"It is a bruise, but we have to rule out any ligament strain," he told ESPN.

"He only has pain and he doesn't have a history of knee instability.

"The bruise is in the middle part of the knee. We will have to wait to see whether it is a strain."

Chicharito is now doubtful for United's Premier League trip to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
