Recently Hernandez went through a stretch in which he scored 10 goals in seven games in the Bundesliga, DFB Pokal and Champions League, which explains why he was given the award. Bayer Leverkusen are still alive in all three competitions. They sit sixth in the Bundesliga table, 19 points behind leaders Bayern Munich.

He is currently tied for ninth in scoring in the Bundesliga, with six goals in 11 games (three in the month of November). He has scored 12 goals over-all this season (four in the month of November).
