Chicharito Scores The Winner In Bayer Leverkusen's Comeback Win Over Schalke

Bayer Leverkusen striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez scored the winner after Leverkusen erased a 2-0 deficit against Schalke 04 Saturday.

Bayer Leverkusen and Mexico National Team striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez is already having the best club season of his professional career, and it just keeps getting better for the Little Pea. 

Leverkusen found themselves losing 2-0 to Schalke 04 early in the second half Saturday before scoring three goals in six minutes to capture a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Chicharito got the third, which proved to be the eventual winner.

Hernandez now has 26 goals for Bayer Leverkusen this season in all competitions, with 17 of those coming in the Bundesliga. He sits fourth on the list of the Bundesliga's top scorers, behind Thomas Muller (19), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (23) and Robert Lewandowski (29).

We keep expecting Chicharito to slow down or at least have a run of not-incredible form, but it just hasn't happened this season. If we were Chicharito, we would never leave the Bundesliga. Bayer Leverkusen and the Little Pea seem to be a perfect match. We look for it to continue.
