Leeds United winger Jack Harrison only suffered a dead leg against Arsenal and won’t be injured for any upcoming action, according to journalist Phil Hay.
The Lowdown: Leeds humbled by Arsenal
The Whites’ worrying Premier League form continued on Saturday evening, with the Gunners cruising to a 4-1 victory at Elland Road.
An injury-ravaged Leeds side were rarely in the contest against Mikel Arteta’s team and there are now genuine concerns regarding a relegation battle.
Marcelo Bielsa has a host of key men unavailable and there were worries that Harrison had also suffered an injury after being replaced in the first half.
The Latest: Positive Harrison update
However, taking to Twitter after the game, Hay confirmed in a nine-word verdict that the winger only had a dead leg, with no serious injury detected.
The journalist tweeted: “Harrison has a dead leg so that’s not serious.”
The Verdict: No more injuries
This is a rare positive injury update in an otherwise disastrous season for Leeds, who simply cannot afford any more injuries to important figures.
Harrison may not have been at his best this season, failing to score in 15 Premier League appearances, but his availability is crucial in terms of allowing Bielsa to rotate in attack.
Saturday’s defeat only heightened the need to bring in January reinforcements, though, with Leeds’ squad looking threadbare at best amid their precarious league position.
