Leeds United supporters have taken to social media to heap huge praise on senior player Pablo Hernandez for his performance against Middlesbrough.

The 32-year-old produced a fantastic display as the Yorkshire club secured an important 2-1 victory over playoff rivals Middlesbrough at Elland Road on Sunday afternoon.

The midfielder opened the scoring just after 20 minutes with a fine finish at the back post and he provided a wonderful assist for the second goal which was converted by Ergjan Alioski in the second-half.

The visitors got back into the match through a Britt Assombalonga penalty but Leeds held on to record a crucial win.

The Leeds supporters reacted the match on social media and the majority of them expressed their delight towards Hernandez.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

The Spaniard has been in fine form for Leeds this season, notching up four goals and four assists in all competitions so far.

This was a massive result for the Whites after four consecutive defeats in all competitions.

The victory means that Leeds are just one place off the playoff spot but they are now level on points with Garry Monk’s side in the league table.

Thomas Christiansen’s side will look to build on the result when they travel to Molineux to face Wolves in midweek.
