The Mexican forward is unsure how he will react if he opens his account for his new employers against one of his former sides

Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is torn over whether he will celebrate if he scores for West Ham at Old Trafford.

Hernandez will return to Manchester for Sunday's Premier League opener, but in claret and blue, after joining West Ham from Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.

West Ham 6/4 to finish in the top ten

The 29-year-old Mexico international left United two years ago, moving to Leverkusen after falling down the pecking order at the Theatre of Dreams, where he scored more than 50 goals in all competitions.

And Hernandez is unsure how he will react if he opens his account for new side West Ham on the weekend.

"I don't know if I will celebrate if I score at Old Trafford," he said. "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.

"I am very happy and glad, it's the best way to come back and open at Old Trafford.

"I am a Hammer, a West Ham player, I want to do even better than I did in Manchester."
