Javier Hernandez believes that any player in the world would want to be a part of Sunday’s showdown between Manchester United and Liverpool at Old Trafford.
The arch-rivals go head-to-head at 13:30 GMT this Sunday and Chicharito is well aware of the history and tradition of the fixture.
“It’s a derby game and these two teams have won the most titles in England,” says Chicharito in an exclusive interview with United Review for Sunday’s game. “It’s a match you want to be involved in. Every player wants to play on Sunday – any player in the world would want to be a part of it.”
The Mexican forward’s first appearance against Liverpool was as a starter in the 1-0 FA Cup third round win in January 2011. And with doubts remaining over the fitness of Wayne Rooney, Hernandez could find a place in the first eleven again this weekend.
Chicharito has scored twice in five appearances against Liverpool – a consolation strike in March 2011’s 3-1 defeat at Anfield and then in October that year the livewire forward snatched a more positive, point-saving late equaliser, again away from home.
“When we lost 3-1 it was a strange feeling for me,” he adds. “It was my first season and to score against Liverpool at Anfield was good, but it doesn’t have the same taste when you lose. It was different when I scored in the 1-1 draw because we were losing and we got a point. It’s a brilliant feeling to score in this game.”
