According to Jesse Marsch, the head coach of Leeds United, Jack Harrison was exhausted when he was substituted off against Brentford at halftime.
On Saturday afternoon in the Premier League, Brentford defeated Marsch’s Leeds 5-2 away from home.
Harrison, who can play as an offensive midfielder or as a winger, got the game going.
At halftime, Marsch made the decision to switch the former Manchester City prospect for Patrick Bamford, an English international striker.

Regarding Harrison’s replacement, Marsch remarked, “No, I felt Jack was a little bit fatigued. These men received a lot of attention over the three-game week.

“We were considering adding additional substitutions at halftime, but we only chose that one since Jack has been outstanding.
We decided to attempt to put someone else on who could push the game a little bit because “I just didn’t feel like he had his legs in his power like he typically has.”
This season, Jack Harrison has been outstanding for Leeds United and is a vital member of the squad.
The 25-year-old is a consistent starter who scores goals, makes opportunities, gives his all for the club, and works well with others.
Of course, every player has off days, but Harrison did not seem to be in the right frame of mind against Brentford.
These things do occur.
We shouldn’t interpret it too broadly.
In six Premier League outings so far this year, Harrison has one goal and three assists.
