Stephen Warnock has said on BBC Radio 5 Live (4:27pm, April 25, 2021) that Leeds United winger Jack Harrison did not play well due to Manchester United duo Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw.
Leeds played out a goalless draw with United at Elland Road in the Premier League on Sunday.
Harrison, on loan from Manchester City, started for the Whites, but head coach Marcelo Bielsa took the winger off in the 68th minute.
Former Leeds defender Warnock believes that United right-back Wan-Bissaka kept Harrison, who can also operate as an attacking midfielder, quiet in the first half, and left-back Shaw did a job on him after the break.
Warnock said about Harrison on BBC Radio 5 Live (4:27pm, April 25, 2021): “He has been quiet today, Jack Harrison, usually very influential player for Leeds United, but he has been well marshalled by Wan-Bissaka in the first half and Luke Shaw in the second.”
How did Jack Harrison play?
Harrison has been brilliant for Leeds this season, but the 24-year-old had a bad day at the office on Sunday.
The Englishman showed moments of class, but overall, he could not make an impact and was rightly taken off.
According to WhoScored, against United on Sunday, Harrison had a pass accuracy of 73.9%, took 35 touches, attempted two dribbles, made one tackle and one interception, and put in four crosses.
