Leeds United sit second in the Championship table as it stands and have looked a real force this season, but have done that largely without arguably their best player at his best.
Pablo Hernandez is the most talented Whites player in terms of being a creative threat and the good news is that there is so much more to come from him.
He’s only managed 13 league games so far this campaign, scoring two goals and supplying three assists.
The Spanish playmaker unfortunately missed a six-game league block during October and has had to work his way back to fitness.
But the 34-year-old has played every minute of the last three consecutive games for Marcelo BIelsa’s team and there was an indication at the weekend he’s returning to form.
Leeds have statistically the best defence in the division, but can improve going forward and the 4-0 win over Middlesbrough at the weekend was only the third time they have scored three or more goals this season.
Hernandez picked up an assist against Boro and there were signs that he’s starting to pull the strings again in the final third.
The attacking midfielder can pop up in central or wide areas to help link up play and there is no doubt he brings his teammates up a level.
