Leeds United fans were left ecstatic on Saturday afternoon following Pablo Hernandez’s game-changing display.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side romped away with a 3-0 victory over promotion rivals Fulham at Elland Road to retake the lead in the Championship and move eight points clear of those dreaded playoff positions.

The Whites were handed the lead early in the first half through Patrick Bamford despite being a little sub-par but inspired substitutions from the Argentine at the break spurred them on to two more goals.

Gjanni Alioski was in the right place at the right time to double the advantage just before the hour mark before Pablo Hernandez provided Jack Harrison with an exquisite assist to make it three.

And the performance from the Spaniard has put plenty of the United faithful in a frenzy. The superlatives for him were endless ranging from “phenomenal” to “different gravy” to even being “on par with Messi”.
