Jack Harrison has been one of the most vehemently criticised players at Leeds United this season but he is beginning to showcase his class.
The divisive winger scored a vital goal to sink Sheffield Wednesday when automatic promotion was still on the cards in April, and he continued to underline his big-game mentality by providing a sumptuous assist for Kemar Roofe to put Leeds in control ahead of Wednesday’s second leg.
Harrison neatly worked the space with an outrageously deft one-two, and he followed up his intelligent build up with one of the most perfectly weighted crosses you’re likely to see this season.
That was undoubtedly the outstanding moment of his and Leeds’ performance but he was a constant threat for the visitors, so it was no surprise that supporters on Twitter were eager to pay tribute to the 22-year-old for his excellent display.
He is due to return to Manchester City in the summer when his loan spell expires but he could yet convince Marcelo Bielsa and the supporters that he is worth bringing to the club on a permanent basis with two more performances of this standard in the play-offs.
Here’s what the Whites faithful had to say about Harrison’s performance…
I gave Harrison a bit of stick during the season but he was best player on the pitch today well deserved and very happy for him

I know a lot aren’t big fans of him but that pass by Harrison ? wow!
Credit where it’s due. We have definitely developed him into the player we thought we were signing first off. Outstanding ? #Lufc

Harrison’s best performance in a Leeds shirt. Dallas best game of the season. Roofe back to being roofe. Shacks is amazing. 90 more minutes to book a further 90. Come on Leeds #lufc

Word on Harrison. Class all the way through. Been given stick this season, some of it fair, but smashed it today and what a ball for Roofe’s goal ? #lufc
