World 2018 43 Mexicans Abroad: April 19--22 31708939 Floating in space Floating+in+space World

The inevitable celebrations at Old Trafford on Monday placed Javier Hernández's future with Manchester United into stark relief. United manager Sir Alex Ferguson left “Chicharito” out of his side once again for the title-clinching 3-0 victory over Aston Villa.

 

PFA Player of the Year nominee Robin van Persie subsequently notched a stunning hat trick to subdue Villa and wrest the title away from Manchester City. Van Persie's continued presence in the side – plus the support provided by Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck and the swirling rumors about further reinforcements during the summer – may force Hernández to examine whether he needs to move elsewhere in order to celebrate a title on the field instead.

 

Other Mexicans Abroad assumed a more active role this weekend. Read on to learn more about Espanyol's continued success and Real Sociedad's setback in the Champions League race:

Hernández featured among the substitutes for United's 3-0 victory over Aston Villa on Monday. Robin van Persie nabbed his hat trick inside of 33 minutes – including a stunning first-time volley from a perfectly weighted Wayne Rooney service – to start the title celebrations early, but Chicharito did not emerge from the bench during the second half to join the party.

Javier Aguirre's side moved into the top ten with a 2-0 victory at nine-man Getafe on Sunday. Joan Verdú scored eight minutes before halftime to place the visitors on the path to victory. Borja and Fede Fernández both collected a pair of yellow cards during the second half to reduce the Europa League chasers. Christian Stuani notched Espanyol's second goal from the foul that prompted Fernandez's dismissal to secure the points.

Sociedad incurred a modest setback in its push for a Champions League place by settling for a 0-0 draw at Osasuna on Sunday. Vela featured for the first 82 minutes in this scoreless stalemate before making way for Diego Ifrán in the final stages of the affair. The point leaves Sociedad two points clear of fifth-place Valencia with six matches left to play.
