David Moyes' Arrival At West Ham Could Be Terrible News For Chicharito

Just when you thought Chicharito would have more chances to play, David Moyes is appointed West Ham manager. 

Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean bad news at first glance (even though many West Ham fans are reportedly pissed that Moyes was named boss).

However, if you take a look at recent history, you’ll see Moyes’ arrival to the London club could potentially spell a great deal of frustration for Javier Hernández.

Watch Chicharito's World Class Finish In West Ham's Draw Against Crystal Palace

Chicharito scored his forth goal of the season playing for West Ham as the Hammers visited Crystal Palace in the tenth week of the Premier League. However, the goal scored by the Mexican was insufficient as Crystal Palace came back from a 0-2 disadvantage in the second half. This was also good news for Chicharito, who has failed to meet the goalscoring expectations placed on him so far.

17-year-old Mexican Diego Lainez Could Be More Expensive Than Chicharito And Christian Pulisic

In recent days a (wild) rumor has spread saying Club América’s jewel, 17-year-old Diego Lainez, could be sold for the staggering amount of $35-41.8 million in 2018. TV Azteca reporter Omar Zerón recently tweeted that several European teams are looking to sign the young player in order to develop him and turn the left-footed Mexican into a star.

West Ham Leaves Chicharito Alone Up Front, Like The New Kid On The First Day Of School

Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez walked away from his West Ham regular season debut goalless, creating a few scattered opportunities but, on the whole, looking isolated up front as Andre Ayew and Marko Arnautović dropped into deep positions early.

Slaven Bilic acknowledged as much in post-match commentary, conceding that West Ham's initial 4-3-3 formation left Chicharito on his own.

Chicharito's West Ham Debut Was Boring But Watch This Banger He Scored In Training

Chicharito has finally made an appearance in an actual West Ham game. The Hammers' new number 17 took the field for the last 20 minutes or so of their friendly against German fifth-tier side Altona 93, which ended in a 3-3 draw.

Hopefully Chicharito can gain full fitness before West Ham's first league match, against Manchester United on August 13.

Chicharito's West Ham Squad Number Has Been Revealed

At Chivas, Chicharito wore number 14. At Manchester United, he wore number 14. At Real Madrid, he wore number 14. At Bayer Leverkusen, he wore number seven. For the Mexico National Team, he wears number 14. For West Ham, Pedro Obian wears number 14 and Sofiane Feghouli wears number seven, so Chicharito will wear number 17.

At the very least, it gives West Ham a clever little hashtag they can use.
