Leeds United: Beren Cross slams Jack Harrison for poor display


Journalist Beren Cross has slammed Leeds United winger Jack Harrison after he performed poorly in the club’s most recent game.

In what could prove to be a massive three points by the end of the Premier League season, the Whites came back from two goals down to win 4-3 at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.

Indeed, goals from Marcus Tavernier, Phillip Billing, and Dominic Solanke put Bournemouth 3-1 up after Rodrigo‘s early opener. However, Sam Greenwood, Liam Cooper and Crysencio Summerville all netted to turn the game in Leeds‘ favour.

Despite the thrill of the win, it was obviously still quite a flawed display and one man was criticised for his efforts. Indeed, in the player ratings for LeedsLive, Harrison was handed a 4/10 – equal with Marc Roca, who also played poorly and was substituted not long into the second half.

On top of that, Cross wrote on Harrison: “The slide in form continues. His start is under massive pressure now. Not showing the pace, energy, stamina, accuracy, dribbling or shooting he needs in such a critical position on the field. Most of the decisions he made seemed to be wrong.”

TIF Thoughts on Jack Harrison and Leeds…

It seems as though manager Jesse Marsch wasn’t very impressed by the performance of the winger, either, as he chose to bring Harrison off at half-time in favour of Wilfried Gnonto.

When you look at his stats on SofaScore, it’s easy to see why. Indeed, Harrison came off having had just 37 touches, in which he lost the ball 13 times and managed to complete just 68% of his passes.

Coming into this match, Harrison had registered SofaScore match ratings of 6.5, 5.4 and 6.0 consecutively. With that in mind, it’s easy to see why the player might be at risk of losing his spot and dropping to the bench in the coming weeks.

Have you been impressed by Jack Harrison so far this season?
