Jack Harrison is facing the ax when Leeds United host Liverpool at Elland Road next Monday, according to Kevin Phillips.

The former Sunderland striker, speaking exclusively to Football insider, urged Bielsa not to change a winning team after Leeds suffered a major shock with their win over Manchester City on Saturday.

A double from Stuart Dallas took down the elected Premier League champions in their own backyard as the Whites were reduced to ten men.

Harrison missed the game due to his loan conditions at Man City and Helder Costa was very impressive in his place.

Phillips wants to see Bielsa keep the same side for the Liverpool clash, aside from the suspended Liam Cooper replacement.

“It’s Bielsa, isn’t it?” He’s her own man and he’s a pretty stubborn guy, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Harrison came back, ” Phillips a dit Football insider correspondant Dylan Childs.

“I would be disappointed if I was a failed player after an away win at Man City, I would like to think he will come away with the same team.

“Obviously he will have to bring someone for Cooper but for me, pick the same team and fire them.

“So you have no problem or someone is knocking on your door saying ‘why did you let me down?’ “.

“It’s Bielsa, we’ve seen him surprise us before, but I personally would go with the same team. “

Leeds United loaned out Jack Harrison

Harrison, 24, has been virtually ubiquitous for Leeds this season, starting 27 of their 31 Premier League games so far.

He has spent the last three seasons at Leeds and a clause in his contract allows them to convert his last loan into a permanent £ 10million contract next summer.
