Javier Hernandez plotting Manchester United downfall on Old Trafford return
West Ham striker Javier Hernandez is looking forward to a "special" return to Manchester United -- but is eager for three points against his former club on the opening weekend of the season.
Hernandez, 29, joined West Ham in a £16 million deal from Bayer Leverkusen this week and is set to feature in his new side's Premier League opener at Old Trafford.
Mexico's all-time leading scorer spent four seasons at United, scoring 59 goals. And while a return to Old Trafford will bring back memories of his time there, the Hammers' striker wants to get one over his former club.
"I'm going back to my old club in the first game, my old house," he told a news conference.
"It'll be very special but I'm defending other colours there.
"I want to help my team get the three points and get the season off on the right foot."
West Ham begin their Premier League campaign with three successive away fixtures, starting with a trip to United on Aug. 13 before travelling to Southampton and Newcastle.
