Javier Hernandez will return to Old Trafford with West Ham on Sunday after signing for the club this summer for £16million from Bayer Leverkusen.

Mexico's all-time leading scorer had a marginal role at Manchester United between 2010 and 2015 but enjoyed two impressive years in the Bundesliga.

The 29-year-old known as 'Chicharito' scored 26 goals across all competitions in his debut season and added another 12 in an injury-hit campaign last year.

Jose Mourinho will be hoping the striker does not spoil his first home game of the season.

Here are five Premier League players who made an impact against their former clubs.

 Emmanuel Adebayor

The Togo striker signed for Manchester City for £25million from Arsenal in 2009.

Within two months of making the switch the 33-year-old scored the third goal in City's 4-2 win over the Gunners.

The sprint from one end of the pitch to the other to slide on his knees in celebration in front of the Arsenal fans will always be remembered.

It was not the perfect return as he was sent off for catching former team-mate Robin van Persie in the face with his studs.
