Pablo Hernandez started in Leeds’ midfield in the Championship clash against Norwich on Saturday and fans were impressed with his creativity on Twitter.
The 31-year-0ld Spain international started in an attacking three for Garry Monk’s side, taking his place behind Chris Wood upfront and in between Kemar Roofe and Souleymane Doukara upfront.
Hernandez played the 89 minutes at Carrow Road in the 3-2 victory, with goals from Chris Wood, Pontus Jansson and Ronaldo Vieira cancelling out Robbie Brady and Kyle Lafferty strikes.
Fans were left hailing the experienced midfielder’s display on social media with many claiming that he needs to be signed up on a permanent deal.

Hernandez joined Leeds in the summer on a loan deal from Qatari side Al-Arabi, rejoining former Swansea manager Monk at the club.
He has made 15 appearances for the club following his move scoring two goals and providing two assists for the Yorkshire giants.
His performances have contributed to a good league campaign for the club, with the famous side now sat in sixth place in the Championship with 26 points from 15 fixtures.
Monk’s side will host Championship giants Newcastle at Elland Road after the international break.
The match has sold out for what is expected to be an enthralling encounter with Rafa Benitez’ side clear at the top following their 2-0 win over Cardiff.
