Leeds United winger Jack Harrison drops disasterclass vs Villa

Jack Harrison endured a nightmare display as Leeds United snagged a point against Aston Villa in a six-goal thriller in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

The visitors from west Yorkshire took an early lead through Daniel James, who was then denied a superb second before the half-hour mark after his shot from the edge of the box cannoned off the crossbar.

Villa equalised seconds later with a fine finish from Philippe Coutinho, who then turned on the style as he provided an assist for Jacob Ramsey’s effort before combining again five minutes later to bag a third.

James scrambled a goal back right on half-time and the Whites equalised just after an hour as Diego Llorente found the net from a corner.

Should Bielsa axe Harrison this weekend?

YES!

YES!

NO!

NO!

A share of the spoils was probably a fair result but it could’ve been a lot better for Marcelo Bielsa and his side had some of his usual stars turned up for the game and the former Manchester City dynamo was particularly underwhelming.

LeedsLive journalist Beren Cross claimed the 25-year-old had a ‘quieter evening’, whilst MOT Leeds News ranked him amongst the worst-performers on the pitch, claiming that he should’ve gotten more involved than he did.

Indeed, Harrison was hugely ineffective and pretty anonymous and that was reflected by SofaScore grading him as the worst player on the pitch with a 5.7 rating.

He managed 60 touches across the 90 minutes but failed to even have a shot, despite the game being so end-to-end, and he recorded just one successful dribble from seven attempts (14%).

Leeds were beaten by Spurs in their first game of 2021 but what was the scoreline?

Elsewhere, he lost possession a whopping 24 times – the second-worst in the side – and won only two of his 14 duels, further suggesting his struggles up against Matty Cash and co.

It means that Harrison lost the ball once every 2.5 touches – or nearly once every four minutes, which is pretty appalling.

Harrison certainly had an off-night down at Villa Park and on the above evidence, he was not only lightweight against the opposition but he too was a complete passenger as the likes of James and Rodrigo, who contributed 5 key passes, thrived in the final third.

He’ll have to do much better when the Yorkshiremen face Everton on Saturday.
