It’s turned into quite a lovely weekend for Leeds United fans. On Sunday we had the joys of yet another three points, victory at Pride Park over Derby County, A Guard of Honour…oh…and we were celebrating automatic promotion back to the Premier League, as Championship title holders.

A much changed Marcelo Bielsa side took a while to find their groove but having fallen behind after the half time break, we clicked into gear and goals from Pablo Hernandez and Jamie Shackleton (as well as an own goal) gave us a deserved 3-1 victory.

Statistics website Whoscored seemed to celebrate the end of 16 years of hurt given their player ratings, but Pablo Hernandez stole the show with a star man score of 8.99.

Was Pablo Your Pick?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Completing the top five best showings in their system were Tyler Roberts (7.81), Pascal Struijk (7.58), Jamie Shackleton (7.50) and Stuart Dallas (7.34).

Extra mentions for Luke Ayling, Barry Douglas and Ezgjan Alioski who all received seven plus scores for their efforts as well.

Onto Charlton, wind the season out with another win and I imagine our youngsters will get another good run out as well.

In 1967, goalkeeper Gary Sprake unfortunately gifted Liverpool a goal as he threw the ball into his own net - which defender was he actually aiming for?
