'Wow, I mean just wow', 'PL quality' – These Leeds fans blown away by one player in win v Fulham
Leeds United took an absolutely huge step towards the Premier League with a convincing 3-0 win over Fulham at Elland Road on Saturday.
Patrick Bamford got his goal in the first half but it wasn’t enough to save him from being hauled off at half-time by Marcelo Bielsa.
He wasn’t holding the ball up as well as he usually does and Fulham were threatening to come right back into the game.
Bielsa took him and Helder Costa off and brought on Gjanni Alioski and Pablo Hernandez.
Alioski played on the left wing, Harrison moved to the right and Tyler Roberts went up top.
The changes had a huge effect with Alioski getting the second goal that really killed the game off for the Whites.
Mateusz Klich played a beautiful pass to Jack Harrison who cut the ball back to an unmarked Alioski in the box.
But it was Hernandez who effected the changes and showed just how much Leeds miss him when he’s out.
He played one of the balls of the season for the third goal from Leeds and it’s fair to say that they looked a completely different side with him on the pitch.
Here are the best reactions from the fans to Hernandez…
Completely different team with pablo in the team without him Leeds wins drop massively, it’s a real shame he’s near the end of his career 😔 #lufc

It’s too early to say that Leeds are promoted but with just seven games left and an eight-point gap to third, it’s getting much, much closer.
