Leeds fans discuss what Jack Harrison did after Tyler Roberts scored on Tuesday
Leeds United secured a brilliant 2-0 win on Tuesday night against Southampton despite Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side welcoming back home supporters – and Leeds fans have reacted to what Jack Harrison did after the second goal.
Tyler Roberts found the back of the net in injury time as a quick Kiko Casilla kick found Raphinha who laid the ball into the Wales star. Despite Harrison being in a better position, Roberts went alone and initially lost the ball.
It fell to Patrick Bamford who lashed an effort towards goal which was saved by Alex McCarthy – only for Roberts to roll home an effort, his first Premier League goal in what was his 26th appearance. A big moment for Roberts.

Had Leeds not scored, though, Manchester City loanee Harrison would have had a right to feel very aggrieved. With the left-footer to the left of Roberts, he should really have received a pass from Roberts – who went himself.
Roberts did eventually finish, and finish well. But replays of the goal showed a very frustrated Harrison reacting angrily during Bamford’s shot and then Roberts effort – and then trudging over to celebrate after failing to get a pass.
Leeds fans reacted on Twitter to 24-year-old Harrison’s reaction, and many applauded him for his desire to score – while others laughed at the uncapped Englishman for what is a surprising reaction to his teammate’s first strike.
He did the same when Klich shot and scored v Burnley .I can understand his frustration if the ball doesn't find the net but both did .Shows he is hungry for goals though so not a bad thing 😁

I’ve found last couple of games hilarious with Harrison’s reaction. But so pleased Tyler got his first prem goal and how happy the rest of the team were for him.

And rightly so. This is an example of one “he got away with” – the better ball was one to Harrison early
