Paul Robinson hails Jack Harrison after back to his best performance for Leeds v Spurs
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...
Paul Robinson has insisted that Leeds United winger Jack Harrison looked back to his best in the 2-1 defeat against Spurs on Sunday.
The attacker delivered his first goal involvement of the season with the brilliant assist for Dan James in the opening 45 minutes.
After playing with an injury for most of the season, Robinson believes the latest break allowed him to return to full fitness again.
Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Robinson said, “He looked like he’d had a rest after the international break.
“He’s been playing with injuries, he knows he’s not been 100% fit. He’s not been up to his usual standards but he’s given performances up to a level.
“I think at the weekend against Spurs, there were glimpses that he’s back to his best, his assist was brilliant and the ball in was fantastic.
“The international break did him the world of good, and hopefully, we can see players fit again because the injuries are really crippling them.”
This is exactly what everyone has been waiting to see from the very first day of the Premier League season.
Harrison was transformed by Marcelo Bielsa over the past couple of seasons, and he shined in the top-flight as a result of that.
A constant rib injury appears to have halted his progress though, and thankfully, it looks as though the recent break was enough for him to recover ahead of the busy Christmas period.
The run and the delivery were both superb against Spurs, and hopefully, this catapults Harrison into some consistency full of goals and assists.
