Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted the Champions League brace scored by Javier Hernandez has posed him a selection quandary as the Manchester United manager juggles the centre-forward options available, the BBC has reported.

Hernandez netter twice as United came from behind to beat Braga 3-2 and put themselves into a commanding position in Group H of the Champions League, five points ahead of second-place CFR Cluj and six in front of Braga with three games to play.

Alan had given Braga a 2-0 lead with two goals in 20 minutes, but a Hernandez double and one from Jonny Evans ensured the points stayed at Old Trafford.

Ferguson now has to select an XI to meet Premier League leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, with Hernandez appearing to have hit form at the right time to earn himself a place in the side.

The BBC claims Hernandez has found himself as United’s fourth choice striker so far this season, behind Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck, but the Mexico international may have just upturned the pecking order.

Ferguson said: “His goal ratio for us is fantastic. For his second goal he bends around the back of the defender. It is a great ball in from Tom Cleverley but his movement is terrific. He's given me a problem - but that's a good thing.
