Leeds United fans were lavishing Pablo Hernandez with praise following the Spaniard’s performance in the narrow win over Reading.
The former Valencia man was in red-hot form against the Royals as he had a staggering six shots on goal and the second-most touches (99) of the ball for his side (via WhoScored). He scored the only goal of the game after he dribbled past a Reading defender before stabbing the ball into the top corner (via BBC).
He was lauded by former Stoke City manager Nathan Jones, who claimed the 34-year-old is one of those players who can create something ‘out of nothing’ (EFL on Quest via Leeds Live). Impressively, he has now scored five goals and contributed four assists in the Championship this season (via Transfermarkt). Fans were full of compliments for the experienced player after his strike as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
