'Appalling': Leeds fans criticise Jack Harrison on Twitter

Jack Harrison of Leeds United holds up three fingers as he asks his teammates how many players they want in the free kick wall during the FA Cup Third Round match between Queens Park...

Jack Harrison struggled for Leeds United yet again on Saturday.

Leeds United have played 990 minutes of Championship football this season and Jack Harrison has been on the pitch for 867 of them.

The Manchester City loanee has started all eleven league games under Marcelo Bielsa this season and after his performance in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Millwall, United fans are asking why.

Harrison, who had a £20 million price-tag slapped on him by City this past summer [The Sun], hasn't scored since the opening day of the season.

It was more of the same from the 22-year-old yesterday - plenty of running, plenty of occasions when he got into good areas, but the final ball invariably lets him down in what is swiftly becoming the story of his two seasons at Leeds.

 

For whatever reason, though, Bielsa seems to be a big fan, but Whites supporters have implored their esteemed coach to bench him after the international break.

Here's how they reacted to Harrison's display at The Den:

In defence of Harrison, he did set up Ezgjan Alioski 15 seconds after the restart as Leeds halved the deficit, but it was his first assist of the season and didn't really build on it.

United, who had 10 men for most of the game due to Gaetano Berardi's controversial red card, slipped to fifth in the Championship as a result of the defeat, but only two points separate them and West Brom at the summit.
