Five things we learned about Leeds United after 4-3 Millwall loss

Pablo Hernandez will be influential before/after Samu Saiz’s comeback

At the heart of much of Leeds United’s good play yesterday was the constant pushing and probing from Spaniard Hernandez. His vision and touch are a joy to behold and it was clear that he was easily the most gifted player on the pitch yesterday on either side. His assist for Pierre-Michel Lasogga’s second goal was evidence of that.

Supporting the German’s surge upfield, Henandez drew the covering Millwall defence to him like a matador draws a tired bull to the swish of his cape. A quick step, a look and he played the ball back inside and into the right place for Lasogga to not even break stride, allowing the German striker to line up a spot in Jordan Archer’s goal and pick it out with Exocet-like accuracy.

When Saiz comes back, at the end of February, both Spaniards should be used in tandem, rather than one favoured over the other.
