Fergie's Terrible Chicharito Dilemma

The goalscoring form of Javier Hernandez has given Manchester United manager, Alex Ferguson, a “terrible dilemma.”

Chicharito has scored 14 goals in 24 appearances for the Red Devils this season, and has played his way into Fergie’s plans ahead of United’s match against Southampton on Wednesday night.

But even for a relentlessly attack-minded manager like Fergie, fielding three front-line strikers is going too far, and so one of Chicharito, goal machine Robin van Persie and old favourite Wayne Rooney will have to miss out.

Van Persie is the Premier League’s top scorer for the second season in a row, and has been the main reason for United’s surge to the top of the table. And so the Dutchman is hardly likely to be dropped.

Rooney has long been a United talisman, and usually starts provided he is fit.

But Chicharito’s purple patch cannot be dismissed, and so Fergie admits to having the kind of selection conundrum only teams like United have the luxury of.

"It's a terrible dilemma when I've got that lad there,” Fergie said of his Mexican starlet, according to Sky Sports.

"Sometimes I leave him out to bring in Robin van Persie but, as I explain to him, we regard him so highly.

"He's a fantastic professional, unbelievable attitude to the game, never stops running or working and every training session is the same.

"So I'm really pleased for him and it is also good to see Wayne back scoring."

Who do you think should start in attack for United?
