Jack Harrison looks set to miss Leeds United’s clash with Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday afternoon.

Leeds are juggling injuries and suspensions heading into the final two games of the season, with their Premier League status on the line.

They sit in the relegation zone following last night’s defeat to Chelsea, a game in which they lost Daniel James to a red card and Harrison to what looked like a leg injury.

Harrison limped out of action on 37 minutes, clearly feeling an earlier challenge from Reece James, and was replaced by Junior Firpo.

In a report for The Athletic, Phil Hay has suggested that Harrison’s injury will rob Jesse Marsch of his service against Brighton on Sunday, as Leeds look for a win to somehow turn their season back around.

The 25-year-old has made 36 appearances this season for Leeds, scoring nine goals across all competitions, seven of which have been in the Premier League.

His absence, coupled with James’ suspension and Raphinha cramping up, give Leeds a significant headache in the wide areas.

It never rains, it pours. Particularly when it comes to Leeds United and injuries.

No sooner had James been sent off last night, Harrison was hobbling down the tunnel.

According to this update, it looks very much like Harrison will join James on the sidelines on Sunday, which is a huge concern.

Leeds look utterly toothless at the moment, so to be missing a player that’s got nine goals to his name this season, is a concern for Marsch.

It’s the point of the season now where Leeds need to win against Brighton on Saturday. Failure to do so could seal their fate depending on what Burnley and Everton do.

Marsch will have wanted bodies available, instead he’s got Luke Ayling and James suspended, plus a number of others nursing knocks and injuries.
