Championship Team of the Year snub looks even more bewildering after Pablo Hernandez produces masterclass for Leeds

Pablo Hernandez was not included in the EFL Championship Team of the Year.

Pablo Hernandez was the match-winner as Leeds United claimed an important home victory against struggling Millwall.

It was anything but plain sailing for Leeds, who went behind twice against the relegation-threatened Londoners.

But Hernandez inspired a comeback victory, scoring a brace for the Whites to help his side to a 3-2 win.

The veteran Spaniard just seems to get better with age and it is a major surprise that he was not included in the EFL’s Championship Team of the Year.

Hernandez could even stake a claim for a Championship Player of the Year nomination but he was snubbed by the EFL’s awards panel.

The 33-year-old has now scored 12 league goals this season, as well as providing 11 assists, making him one of the deadliest midfielders in the division.

 

But the EFL instead decided that Hernandez’s Leeds team-mate Kalvin Phillips, as well as Jarrod Bowen (Hull City) and Oliver Norwood (Sheffield United) were the better options.

While all three of the other midfielders have enjoyed impressive campaigns, Hernandez has arguably been more influential.

Without Hernandez’s consistent performances in midfield, chipping in with goals and assists, Leeds might have been unable to sustain their promotion bid.

He once again proved his class with a match-winning performance against Millwall, highlighting his worth and proving a point to the EFL.
