We haven’t covered a lot of MLS in recent weeks but this guy’s form has court our eye. Javier”Chicharito” Hernandez MAY BE A LITTLE OVER THE HILL for European soccer but he is making waves in the city of Angels. He scored a hat trick recently against New York Red Bull and was on the score sheet on Sunday in the LA derby against LA FC. The goal he scored against his team’s city rivals qualifies this week for our play of the week. It is a great goal in its simplicity. Sometimes strikers forget what they are being paid to do, to stick the ball into the back of the net. Some number 9s like to score the impossible goal, taking on one thousand defenders to finally score(Arsenal are you reading). Chicharito stays just shoulder to shoulder with the last defender keeping onside and had eyes for the ball. Another striker would have gone out of position when the ball turned over to FC thinking the chance had gone. This goal reminded us of the goal he scored for Manchester United to clinch the title for the Red Devils in 2011 against Chelsea. Similar sequence. Watch.
