Major League Soccer has one of its greatest attractions to captivate fans in the scores of Mexican players and as goals are loves, who came to replace Carlos Vela, forward of Los Angeles FC, as the best gunner in the league North American is Javier Chicharito Hernández, player of the classic rival Los Angeles Galaxy.

Well, it's not easy at all, but it started on fire. In the 2019 season, Vela managed to score 34 goals in 31 games played to take away the record for the highest number of scores in a single MLS season that Venezuelan Josef Martínez had. Chicharito, is the next player who can compete with them and establish a new brand of the competition.

Carlos Vela's record stunned the entire MLS world because he represented scoring a goal in every regular season game. However, Chicharito Hernández' start in 2021 shakes the Los Angeles FC forward's brand as he has a better scoring start.

With a goal average every 58 minutes, Chicharito Hernández reaches the fifth date of MLS 2021 in which the Los Angeles Galaxy will face Austin FC (Saturday, May 15 at 3:30 p.m. ET) with six goals, while Vela in the record 2019 season had four touchdowns through matchday four.

In 2019, when Carlos Vela recorded the record for the most goals in a season, he finished the fifth match with seven touchdowns. That means that if Javier Chicharito Hernández scores just one goal in the Los Angeles Galaxy vs. Austin FC would be on track to break the mark of attacker Los Angeles FC. Of course, it's only been five days, but the goals are coming everywhere.
