Jack Harrison struggles with consistency, Sky pundit admits as he raves about Leeds United winger work rate
We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United...
Jesse Marsch will find it hard to leave Jack Harrison out of the Leeds United team due to his current form, according to Paul Robinson.
Harrison, 25, has scored in three consecutive Premier League fixtures for the Whites to help them move away from the relegation zone.
On 1 April, The Telegraph reported that Tottenham were interested in signing the ex-Manchester City winger, who they feel could play at wing-back for them.
Robinson’s a massive fan of Harrison’s work rate but feels that the winger fails to put together a string of impressive displays.
“Harrison struggles with consistency at times but when he plays well, he’s hard to leave out of the team because he has that goal threat,” Robinson told MOT Leeds News.
“He works so hard up and down the field, going both ways, and it doesn’t always come off for him but one thing you can guarantee with him is his work rate.
“You’re going to get 100 per cent from him every game.
“He’s not one of these luxury players, he puts in a shift regardless of how he’s playing and if he is playing well, that’s all the better. And with his goals, he’s had to up his game because Dan James has come in, Raphinha’s there, he’s there, Rodrigo’s been playing and Kalvin Phillips has come back in.
“Harrison has had to work hard to keep his place in the team so you’ve got to give him credit for them because he’s proven he’s invaluable.”
Harrison has scored nine goals in all competitions for Leeds this season, assisting twice.
Only Raphinha has outscored the Stoke-born winger with the Brazilian netting 10 for the Yorkshire giants.
