Leeds United got off to a very fast start at Elland Road on Friday night although it took Mateusz Klich two attempts to score his penalty.

Thankfully, Fabianski was off his line even in the run-up and Klich made no mistake with his second spot-kick.

We thought Leeds would spring on from that base but instead West Ham dominated the first half and Leeds looked well off it.

One of the worst culprits was Jack Harrison, who seems to have reverted into the frustrating 2018 version of himself.

He looked completely different from the player who was a constant danger against Liverpool in the first game of the season.

Many Leeds fans pointed this out and were asking for him to be taken off at half-time.

Crossing too often hit the first man and when he tried to run with the ball it just looked aimless.

Helder Costa has lost his place in the side to Raphinha and while the Brazilian wasn’t at his marauding best tonight, it was Harrison who got the most flack from the Leeds fans.

The fans got their wish as Harrison was taken off at half-time but it became a case of careful what you ask for…

Costa came on and was arguably worse than Harrison, giving away the free-kick that let West Ham score the winner.

It was a toss-up between the two who got the most flack from fans on Twitter and we could easily see neither of them starting against Newcastle in midweek.

That would mean Ian Poveda getting a start. But, to be honest there weren’t many good signs from any of the Leeds players tonight.

Here are the best reactions to Harrison’s 45 minutes…
