Agbonlahor issues Harrison claim amid 'massive' Leeds verdict
Gabby Agbonlahor has called on Jack Harrison and Stuart Dallas to start chipping in with more goals for Leeds United.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker delivered his verdict after the pair scored their first Premier League goals of the season in the 3-1 win over Burnley on Sunday (2 January).
Harrison opened the scoring for Leeds before Maxwel Cornet levelled the scores.
The Whites then retook the lead with just over 10 minutes to go through Dallas’ long-range strike.
It was only Leeds’ fourth Premier League win of the season and it puts them eight points above Burnley who occupy the final relegation place.
“They’ve got to start scoring, Harrison and Dallas have done that, which was massive,” controversial pundit Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“Leeds were the better side against Burnley. That’s what they need, other players to step up to the plate and start scoring goals, not just looking at Raphinha to do it.
“You’re looking at it now, that’s a massive win with how the table looks. Hopefully, Leeds can start edging away from that relegation zone.
“It’s very important for Leeds to stay up. They need new players and they might lose a couple of players.
“That Burnley win was such a massive game. You couldn’t have given Burnley three points because then they start catching you.
“One more win for Leeds and it gives them a lovely breathing space.”
Harrison and Dallas both scored eight Premier League goals last season.
Dallas, 30, made his 250th appearance in the win over Burnley at the weekend.
