Jack Harrison can’t play for Leeds United this Saturday as he’s still on loan from Man City.

That means a place in the starting line-up for either Helder Costa or Ian Poveda, with the former probably favourite to make the XI.

However, it also potentially opens up a place on the bench for the first time for exciting winger Crysencio Summerville.

The winger, who signed from Feyenoord for £1.3m last summer, has been on fire for the Under-23s, scoring five and adding seven assists in just 11 games this season.

He scored a hat-trick against Middlesbrough back in February and scored in the last game out, a 5-0 win against West Brom.

He hasn’t made the bench yet for Leeds but he has played 21 times in the Dutch top-flight for ADO De Haag, scoring twice and adding three assists.

He’s shown some real skill for the Under-23s this season and there are plenty of Leeds fans who would love to see him make the first-team squad.

Bielsa doesn’t seem ready to promote any of the talented Under-23s to the senior starting XI yet but with Costa out of form and Poveda still off match fitness following injury, now would seem like the perfect time to give Summerville his first taste of the first-team bench.

Poveda showed some brilliant form against Man City when we drew 1-1 earlier in the season.

Summerville is a similarly dynamic and skilful player. He would have nothing to lose if he came off the bench on Saturday and everything to prove.
