Leeds United are in a bad patch of form currently and attacking star Jack Harrison has given an honest assessment on what has been missing and what needs to change to turn things around.
What Harrison said about Leeds
Speaking via the Leeds United website, Harrison said: “The efficiency in our attacking end has to improve, with our style of play we are always able to create chances, it is down to us to capitalise on that and making sure we take advantage, along with making sure the opponent doesn’t have a way back into the game.
“Against Brighton it was difficult for us to even create those chances, that was something we were missing and we will be working on that going into the next game.”
The attacker has a point
In his seventeen appearances in England’s top flight, Harrison has thoroughly impressed. He has picked up three goals, four assists, and managed 1.4 shots and 2.1 key passes a game (WhoScored). He is also only 24 years-old, so has the potential to get even better than he already is.
He received great praise from Adrian Clarke earlier this season as he said: “I just wanted to flag up a player that I think might be one of the most underrated or under-appreciated in the league and that’s Jack Harrison.”
Harrison definitely has a point when he mentions that Bielsa’s side were missing creativity when they played their last Premier League match. It was pointed out by Phil Hay that they managed an xG (expected goals) of just 0.3 against Brighton and this was the lowest they’ve ever registered in a single league game under Marcelo Bielsa.
The Whites are yet to score a goal since the turn of the year, and Bielsa will certainly be hoping they can rediscover that missing creativity Harrison alludes to.
