Striker reveals favourite of his 52 PL goals for West Ham and Man Utd as he receives Cadbury prize

Chicharito is looking to steer West Ham United back into European football after hitting 50 goals in the Premier League.

The striker reached the milestone in last month's 3-1 win over Fulham and then struck twice as a substitute to inspire a 4-3 victory against Huddersfield Town before the international break.

The fightback left West Ham in ninth place and only two points off Wolverhampton Wanderers in seventh, the position Chicharito is vying for.

Chicharito Player Profile

"To get West Ham into that seventh position and get into Europe is the most important thing in our minds," he said having received his Milestone award from Cadbury.

"If I can play as many minutes as I can and help score with some good performances, that's my main goal in these last seven games."

Favourite goal

Chicharito became the first Mexican to reach a half-century of goals, and the 106th player in the league's history.

All 52 that Chicharito has scored have been from inside the penalty area, including his favourite goal against Chelsea.

Coming in his debut season in England, Chicharito noted that his early opener for Manchester United against their 2010/11 title rivals was the most important.

"That goal gave us a lot of confidence," says the striker.

"Imagine starting that game and within 30 seconds you score and are winning 1-0 against your rival to decide who is going to win the Premier League; so I think that goal is the most important."
