Leeds United: Jack Harrison could lose spot to Crysencio Summerville

Journalist Beren Cross has warned that Leeds United attacker Jack Harrison may lose his spot in the team amid his latest poor display. 

What’s the latest?

While the Whites battled hard to stifle opponents Newcastle United at St James’ Park in their most recent Premier League match, it seems not everyone impressed.

Indeed, the game finished 0-0 and so the Leeds’ backline can be proud of their efforts but perhaps the attack left a little bit to be desired. This certainly seemed to be the case for Harrison who was criticised after the game.

While speaking on a LeedsLive Facebook Stream, Cross explained that the winger could well be in line to lose his spot in Jesse Marsch’s lineup to Crysencio Summerville.

Cross said (09:21): “Harrison, unfortunately for him, it just continued in the same vein that he finished the first phase of the season in.

“Really not having any real impact on the match in any way at all. Going under the radar, not making an impression in an attacking or defending sense.

“So I think for me, he’s under pressure again for his spot. With Summerville, perhaps a candidate for coming into the team.”

Summerville to shine?

Cross echoed his sentiments towards Harrison in the LeedsLive player ratings as he gave the forward a 4/10 for his display (the worst of any attacker) and noted: “Balls bypassing him, and opposition going by him. Hard to tell what his role was.”

As per SofaScore, the Englishman gave the ball away 11 times, won only 4/1o duels, made four fouls, and had just one attempted shot (which went off target). And with just one league goal to his name this term despite starting 13 of 15 possible games, it’s safe to say he’s been far from his best for some time now.

Summerville, on the other hand, was really starting to come into his own before the break for the winter World Cup, scoring four goals in his last five Premier League outings.

With that in mind, manager Marsch may well feel as though now is the right time to mix things up and give the young Dutchman some more minutes from the start at the expense of Harrison.
