West Ham United forward Javier Hernandez has lavished praise on teammate Marko Arnautovic after both players scored in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Watford.
Hernandez opened the scoring in the 38th minute, before Arnautovic netted 12 minutes from time as the Hammers picked up a much-needed three points in the Premier League.
Arnautovic was back in the team following a muscular problem, and the Austria international netted his seventh league goal of the season against the Hornets.
There were eyebrows raised when West Ham paid more than £20m to sign the 28-year-old from Stoke City during the summer transfer window.
Arnautovic, however, has quickly become a favourite with the West Ham fans, and now Hernandez has hailed the attacker’s ability on the football field.
Hernandez told West Ham’s official website:
“Marko is an unbelievable, all-around player and it gives you a lot of confidence when you play up front with a player like him. We have a good understanding with each other.”
Arnautovic started his professional career with Twente in the Netherlands before a short loan spell at Inter Milan.
The attacker then spent four years with Werder Bremen before joining Stoke in the summer of 2013.
