West Ham summer recruit Javier Hernandez is unsure whether he will celebrate a goal against his former club, Manchester United.

Why no-one can stop the Premier League title from heading back to Manchester this season

The former Red Devil comes face to face with his old team-mates at Old Trafford on Sunday in his debut for new club West Ham.

The Premier League fixtures have thrown up an emotional debut for Hernandez who returns to the ground where he made his name in football.

Hernandez remains a firm favourite among United fans and the Mexican is still debating whether to celebrate in front of them if he scores on Sunday.

‘I don’t know if I will celebrate if I score at Old Trafford,’ said Hernandez.

‘It’s my old club, my old fans, my old stadium but it’ll be my first goal for West Ham.

‘I am not thinking about the celebration, I just want to have the chance to start and get my team the result.’

Sir Alex Ferguson signed Hernandez from Chivas as an unknown forward in 2010 and the striker went on to score an impressive 59 goals in 158 appearances.

West Ham forked out £16million to Bayer Leverkusen to bring Hernandez back to England this summer.

Hernandez will re-introduce himself to the Premier League in front of his old fans and the 29-year-old admitted he was not sure how he should feel.

‘I don’t know how to describe it. I just can say that it’s luck,’ he said.
