Marcelo Bielsa praised the contribution of Leeds United’s Jack Harrison in the win against QPR on Saturday afternoon.
The Whites returned to the top of the Championship table on goal difference by beating QPR 2-0 at Elland Road.
The Yorkshire giants kept yet another clean sheet to highlight their defensive strength, while they also scored twice to pick up the points.
Harrison was influential throughout the contest and he assisted Tyler Roberts for the opener just before half-time with a pass to him.
The 22-year-old then got on the scoresheet himself in the second-half to wrap up the win
He is a left-winger that gives so much energy to the Leeds team and it seemed like he was all over the park against QPR.
“He did a lot of effort. He played on the left side, full-back, midfielder, winger. He defended and attacked as well. He scored the second goal and gave the pass for the first goal and he ran in the corridor a lot, attacking and defending,” Bielsa said, as quoted by Leeds Live.
Harrison has had a fair amount of criticism at Leeds, but Bielsa has stood by him and kept him in the starting XI for every league game this season.
His end product has always been a weakness to his game, but he’s fixed that in recent weeks with assists and even grabbed himself a goal against QPR.
His immense work-rate is a great fit for Bielsa’s style of play and he’s now producing in the final third to justify his spot in the team.
