Harrison was a key player for Leeds last season, contributing to 16 goals from 36 Premier League appearances, but has struggled to replicate his from this season.


The 24-year-old is yet to register a goal or assist in the league despite playing seven matches and there appear to be concerns about his current form.



As pressure mounts on Harrison to turn things around, Leeds boss Bielsa has come to his defence, insisting that it is his duty to enable the forward to shine.


Bielsa explained that other players in the Leeds squad also have struggled to maintain their form and went on to hail Harrison’s abilities as an attacking player for the Whites.



You ask me a question where you know that I can’t praise his performances up until now“, Bielsa told a press conference.


But what is happening to Harrison is happening to all the players in our squad where they have better or worse moments and nobody is able to maintain a regular consistency in their performances, especially when they play in attack.



Harrison is a player with a lot of resources to be able to play on both wings and we have enjoyed his contributions.


Harrison will continue to shine or will shine again in proportion to the faculties that he has and it is my job to put him in situations in the game where he is able to shine and to make him feel as important as I feel that he is.


Of course, any question that invites public criticism of my players I reject.


While Harrison has failed to register a goal or assist in the league this season, he will be looking to take confidence from Bielsa’s words and help Leeds to a win over Norwich City on Sunday.
