Jack Harrison joined Gareth Bale & Wayne Rooney in an exclusive club during Leeds’ draw with Brighton


Leeds United star Jack Harrison, on Saturday, joined a number of high-profile names in an altogether exclusive Premier League club.

Harrison and Leeds, of course, were back in action earlier today.

Amid the club’s ongoing battle against relegation, Javi Gracia’s troops welcomed Brighton & Hove Albion to Elland Road, desperate for a bounce-back result.

And though the Whites ultimately failed to secure all three points, they did do enough to emerge with a hard-earned share of the spoils.

This came as Patrick Bamford cancelled out a Brighton opener late in the first-half, before the aforementioned Jack Harrison redeemed himself from own goal misery with a decisive Leeds 2nd inside the closing quarter of an hour:

And, as alluded to above, in the process, wide-man Harrison secured for himself an altogether bizarre piece of English football history.

As revealed by statisticians Squawka, the former Manchester City man today became just the fifth player in history to rack up all of a goal, own goal and assist in a single Premier League fixture.

The others? Kevin Davies, Gareth Bale, Wayne Rooney and Jacob Ramsey.

Which team has conceded the most goals in a single Premier League season?
