We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United
Paul Robinson has said that Jack Harrison will be a “massive loss” after being ruled out of the Leeds United clash with Man City.
He is ineligible to play as he’s currently on loan from City but Robinson said the winger had just got back to the top of his game.
Marcelo Bielsa confirmed the news in his pre-match press conference from Thorp Arch on Thursday and admitted himself that it would be a big blow but added, “we knew the rule”.
Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News Robinson said, “Jack Harrison was back to his best and probably man-of-the-match for me against Sheffield United.
“He’s had an indifferent few weeks, been in and out of the side and subbed and rotated with Helder Costa… that hasn’t helped him.
“But I thought he was outstanding at the weekend and he was back to the top of his game.
“He’ll be brilliant for Leeds in the season run-in but he’s going to be a massive loss against Man City.
“It was good business, though, to take him on loan again. It meant Leeds had more money to spend on players last summer.”
It’s fair to say that we’d want all our best players when we travel to the Etihad on Saturday.
The good news is that Bielsa has no fresh injury issues and Harrison will be the only absentee.
The game kicks off at 12.30pm and is live on BT Sport.
