Harrison urges unity in relegation scrap

Leeds United winger Jack Harrison has called for unity as the club tries to climb out of the relegation zone when they take on Chelsea at Elland Road on Wednesday (Match betting – Leeds 7/2, Draw 3/1, Chelsea 7/10).

The Whites have lost back-to-back matches in the Premier League, a dip in form which has coincided with Everton’s upturn in results.

Leeds’ 2-1 defeat to Arsenal at the weekend saw them drop into the bottom three and they now need results to go their way due to their inferior goal difference.

They have the advantage of two successive home matches and Harrison says the players are still together and ready to fight until the very end.

He told reporters: “We have an important game coming up on Wednesday, and we just have to stay strong and be ready for that.

“At this point, it’s a difficult moment for us as a club, but we have to stay together, we have to have belief and keep going forward positively.

“It’s about staying together, the young lads stepping up, and we just have to stay positive.”

Leeds will be without Luke Ayling due to suspension, while Liam Cooper could return at the heart of defence. Chelsea, who need a result to improve their chances of finishing third, have Jorginho and N’Golo Kante facing late fitness tests.

Elsewhere, the Whites’ relegation rivals Everton can move a step closer to safety when they tackle Watford at Vicarage Road (Match betting – Watford 4/1, Draw 11/4, Everton 4/6).

The Hornets have not won at home since November and the Toffees look to be playing Roy Hodgson’s men at the perfect time.

Everton’s Yerry Mina is set to miss out due to a calf problem, while Watford’s Hassane Kamara is suspended.

The same can be said for Leicester City, who welcome Norwich City to the King Power Stadium at 19:45 (Match result – Leicester 2/5, Draw 19/5, Norwich 6/1).

James Maddison, James Justin, and Jamie Vardy are all pushing for recalls to the Foxes starting XI, while the Canaries’ Josh Sargent, Mathias Normann and Kenny McLean all miss out through injury.
