Leeds United winger Jack Harrison has heaped praise on teammate Ezgjan Alioski after his impact against Luton Town.
The Whites were expected to dominate the Hatters on Tuesday night, and the stats certainly tell the story of a one-sided game.
Leeds had 75% of possession, 23 shots, nine shots on target and 15 corners, throwing everything at the Luton goal – but they only got a point.
Harry Cornick nicked a goal for Luton to put them ahead, only for Stuart Dallas to equalise and rescue a point for Leeds.
Alioski made a positive impression as a half-time substitute, having come on for Gaetano Berardi – who himself had come on for Liam Cooper after 12 minutes.
The Macedonian come on at left back and picked out a superb pass to set up Dallas’s goal, showing incision and creativity coming forward.
After the game, teammate Harrison admitted to Leeds Live that Alioski had been a great addition to the Leeds side, showing energy and the desire to run at opponents.
Harrison noted that Alioski’s running stats in games are ‘inspiring’, raving about the work Alioski does on himself and on his teammates.
“Always energetic, always running and causing problems for the opponents,” said Harrison. “Great addition to the side. We know what he’s like. Provides that as an outlet for the side as well. You can see, as an audience, the impact he has. Just shows every player in the XI and bench is important. Brilliant shape. GPS stats are inspiring, the work he does. Pushes other team-mates to do better as well,” he added.
