David James stunned by what Jack Harrison did in Leeds United v Watford
David James has been blown away by the goal Jack Harrison scored for Leeds United in their 3-0 win against Watford.
The English attacker picked his spot in Ben Foster’s goal and threw all his power into the shot that ended up in the back of the net.
He has been enjoying a decent run of form of late and would have been thrilled with the finish himself.
Speaking on the Premier League Weekend Roundup, James, a BBC pundit, said, “It was a phenomenal strike from Harrison. We’ve seen some wonderful goals this season.”
It was an incredible finish from the 25-year-old who’s suddenly found himself in a purple patch this season.

He began the campaign fighting for his place with Dan James being signed in the summer.
Marcelo Bielsa often alternated between the two and tried the duo in the same eleven, but that clearly did not work.
Under Jesse Marsch, Harrison’s game appears to have been simplified and one can see the results of it already.
He’s now posing the similar amount, if not more the goal threat as Raphinha and that has taken opposition defenders by surprise.
They’re typically used to doubling up on the Brazilian which has led to Marsch asking attacks to now go down the left flank as well.
Harrison has clearly benefited from this minute change in strategy and we’re hoping things continue to go right for him.
