Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez was in fantastic form for his club after he came off the substitute bench to inspire a second half comeback against bottom club Huddersfield Town in their Premier League clash at the Olympic Stadium.

The West Ham United player started the game on the bench before being introduced as a second half substitute for Michail Antonio with the Hammers trailing 2-1 at home.

The Hammers had taken the lead via a first half penalty from club skipper Mark Noble before Huddersfield Town battled back with two goals to turn the game around.

Juninho Bacuna produced a header from a corner kick to restore parity for the Terriers before the main striker Karl Grant added a second goal for his team.

Ex-Charlton striker Grant completed his brace in the second half to give his side a 3-1 lead.

The hosts were rattled by the performance from Huddersfield Town but they were able to recover from their slumber to score three goals in the final 15 minutes of the game.

Angelo Ogbonna pulled one back on 75 minutes before Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez scored the equaliser for his team in the 84th minute.

Chicharito then scored the winning goal in added time to seal a stunning comeback for his team.
