Leeds winger Jack Harrison is confident Marcelo Bielsa's men can finish in the top half of the Premier League after Saturday's 2-1 win over bottom side Sheffield United.

Harrison scored the Whites' opener after good work from Raphinha and it was his cross that was turned into his own net by Phil Jagielka after Ben Osborn had brought the Blades level just before the interval.

The three points were enough to take the Elland Road outfit into the top ten after they claimed promotion from the Championship last season.

Bielsa's team have eight games remaining and have now taken seven points from their last three games, thanks to a goalless draw at home to Chelsea and a 2-1 victory at struggling Fulham.

However, they face leaders Manchester City at the Etihad next Saturday, which will be the severest of tests for a young team who have won seven times on the road this season but not drawn any of their 15 away games.

Harrison, whose strike was his seventh goal of the season, said: "I think we can be happy with how the season has gone so far and I think there will be a lot of proud Leeds fans out there.

"But we're always going to be ambitious as a team and pushing for as many points as we can get so we will be doing that until the end of the season.

"It would be great for us to finish in the top half of the table."

Leeds are 7.50 to beat Manchester City, who are 1.36 to take the three points, while the draw is available at 5.25.
