Pablo Hernandez’s name was a notable omission from the Championship team of the season announced earlier this week. Quite why the Leeds United maestro missed out is unclear, given the level of his performances this season. Hernandez was very good in his first United campaign, comfortably the best player at the club in his even better second, but he has been consistently outstanding in his third this season. While some Leeds players have been affected by the occasion and the automatic promotion pressure in the last few matches, Hernandez has shone like a beacon. He stood head and shoulders above the rest in today’s dramatic 3-2 win against Millwall at Elland Road. Following Patrick Bamford’s fluffed penalty, the Spanish attacking midfielder levelled the scores by coolly converting Luke Ayling’s cross to make it 1-1 and was at the heart of everything Leeds did as they dominated the match. He put the gloss on a colossal personal performance by scoring his second to secure the three points with a sliding finish to Tyler Roberts’ cross. Little wonder fans were drooling over another masterclass from the 33-year-old.
Beautiful finish from king Pablo ???? #lufc

Nothing fancy from Pablo there, just kept his composure and placed it. If only we could do that for 1 in 2 chances, instead of 1 in 10 #LUFC

I don’t think I can adequately express my love for Pablo Hernandez! Bristol City have pegged the Blades back too. Much better #LUFC
