A long way from the place of his professional debut, ex-New York City FC man Jack Harrison has bagged his first Premier League goal on his first appearance in England’s top flight.

Harrison, 23, flicked past Trent Alexander-Arnold and zipped past Joe Gomez before slashing a shot inside the near post to begin his season in style.

The game is now 3-2 as Mohamed Salah has scored twice and Virgil van Dijk scored but also gifted a goal to Patrick Bamford.


Harrison had it level eight minutes after Salah’s fourth-minute opener off a pass from recent England debutant Kalvin Philipps.

Harrison left Manchester United’s academy and attended college at Wake Forest before being drafted by the Chicago Fire first overall in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft and almost instantly traded to New York City FC.

He was then bought by parent club Manchester City, who has thrice loaned him to Leeds. He now has 11 goals and 12 assists in three seasons with Leeds.
