Leeds fans hammer Pablo Hernandez after Boro win

Leeds United and another 1-0 victory. No one will care though. They are still within touching distance of the league leaders.

A strike from Mateusz Klich on the stroke of half-time earned the Whites all three points against Championship strugglers Middlesbrough.

Marcelo Bielsa had to cope without his lynchpin Kalvin Phillips as he missed the game through injury, instead the Argentine opted for Brighton centre-back Ben White in central midfield while there was no place for any of their January signings on the bench.

Who should start in midfield this weekend?

Despite the win, sections of the visiting support were far from pleased with what they saw, particularly from the playmaking Pablo Hernandez.

Here’s what has been said…

The 34-year-old clearly wasn’t at his best as fans described his performance as “horror” and as a “shocker”.

He lasted 73 minutes on the pitch before he was pulled for Jamie Shackleton – he managed three key passes and two shots, but also lost possession 23 times and won just 28.5% of his duels, per SofaScore.

Hernandez’s age was brought up by a couple of supporters as one believed he was playing like he was 72 while another said he was a ghost of his former self.

Some chose to point out different attributes in his game – one fan pondered if he had the boots on the wrong feet, and a further member of the Elland Road faithful claimed he kept giving the ball away, which the above statistic would agree with.

This comes just a few days after the majority of the fanbase were left drooling over Phil Hay’s article on the Spaniard.

Football has a funny way of changing in such a short space of time.
