Take a look at the best jokes to do the rounds as a Chicharito hat-trick for Bayer Leverkusen compounded the misery of his former club Manchester United.
Javier Hernández, to give the Mexican striker his real name, scored three goals in 13 minutes against Borussia Monchengladbach to take his tally to 17 goals in 20 matches since arriving for £7.3m in August.
Meanwhile, back in England, Louis van Gaal’s Red Devils extended their winless run to five matches with a 2-1 defeat at newly promoted Bournemouth.
Suffice it to say, the Chicharito hat-trick did not go unnoticed by United fans and those keen to stick the boot in…

.@ManUtd I see you need a goal. Chicharito just scored again. Has 16 goals in 21 games, pretty good. You should sign him!
