Leeds United: Jack Harrison drops ‘poor’ display in draw with Everton

Leeds United forward Jack Harrison has been criticised for being ‘poor’ by journalist Graham Smyth following the club’s most recent outing. 

In the latest round of midweek Premier League fixtures, the Whites had to settle for a point at Elland Road in a feisty 1-1 draw.

Opponents Everton took the lead through Anthony Gordon before the half-time break, before a fine effort from Luis Sinisterra – his first in the league – ultimately settled the scores.

With Leeds only managing one goal, it’s clear the attack wasn’t quite at its best, and it seems as though Harrison was partly responsible for that with his performance.

In the player ratings for the Yorkshire Evening Post, Smyth noted as much, highlighting some of the winger’s wasteful moments, as he wrote: “Some poor corners and crossing positions squandered but his work-rate could not be questioned and he did deliver some dangerous service too.”

TIF Thoughts on Jack Harrison and Leeds United…

While his display wasn’t entirely negative, it does sound as though Harrison could have been an awful lot better with the ball at his feet, and this is backed up by some remarkably disappointing stats.

Indeed, according to SofaScore, he lost the ball 44 times (more than any player on the pitch), had 2/11 attempted crosses, won 5/22 duels attempted (again, the worst record on the pitch), committed three fouls and completed just 2/9 dribbles.

Looking at that, it’s fair to say he struggled to make a positive impact on the night and his SofaScore player rating was recorded at a lowly 6.3, which is by far his worst this season.

All in all, not a great night for the Englishman.
