Jack Harrison: Left MLS to score the first goal of Leeds United’s return to the Premier League
Harrison played for New York City FC and in his debut in the Premier League with Leeds United, he scored a superb solo effort against the defending champions Liverpool.
Marcelo Bielsa took Leeds United to England’s top flight after 16 years in the lower leagues. On the opening day, they visited defending champions Liverpool at Anfield and the home side went 1-0 up in the fourth minute through Mohamed Salah.
From MLS to EPL
Jack Harrison played from 2016-2017 in Major League Soccer with New York City FC where he played 55 games and scored 14 goals. The winger helped Leeds return to the Premier League and grabbed their first goal of the season.
Harrison made a fantastic run, after receiving the ball on the left wing, dribbling past Alexander Arnold and Joe Gomez to expertly guide the ball into the net with his right foot to level the game in the 12th minute. Liverpool defeated Leeds United 4-3 in a thriller of a game.
The 23-year-old English footballer is playing his third season at the Yorkshire club and he is on another year-long-loan from Manchester City.
