Leeds United made it two wins out of three in the Premier League on Sunday, beating Sheffield United 1-0 at Bramall Lane.

It was an end-to-end clash in the Yorkshire derby, but a late Patrick Bamford header gave the Whites all three points.

Marcelo Bielsa insisted his side deserved all three points, but Chris Wilder went against that, claiming Illan Meslier’s performance was a main factor in the game.

Alan Shearer has included Jack Harrison in his Premier League Team of the Week on Tuesday afternoon after his role in the win.

The Manchester City loanee has hit the ground running in the Premier League, and scored a screamer against Liverpool in the 4-3 defeat.

Harrison followed that with an inch-perfect cross for Bamford’s winner against the Blades, something which caught the eye.

The 22-year-old was selected in Shearer’s side alongside the likes of Jamie Vardy and Jack Grealish in the front five.

Harrison was superb, and his assist for the winner saw the Whites sent into the top seven of the Premier League – not a bad start.

Looking at the start of each promoted side, Leeds are way out in front – with Fulham currently rock bottom of the league.

West Brom got their first point against Chelsea on Saturday, throwing away a three-goal lead at the Hawthorns – Callum Robinson joining Harrison in Shearer’s team.

It will be Harrison’s final action for three weeks though, with the winger ineligible for the upcoming clash against his parent club, City – a big void to fill.
