Everton: Jack Harrison blown away by something he saw at Goodison Park

Everton midfielder Jack Harrison already blown away by something he’s witnessed at Goodison Park

'Wow' - Everton summer arrival already blown away by something he's witnessed at Goodison

Everton midfielder Jack Harrison says he was blown away by the noise generated at Goodison Park after James Garner scored against Bournemouth.

The on-loan Leeds United midfielder has been slowly eased into Sean Dyche’s starting line-up after arriving in the summer carrying a troublesome injury.

Harrison made his full Premier League bow in the 3-0 win over Bournemouth prior to the international break, a game in which Garner opened the scoring to give the Toffees lift-off.

Speaking to The Athletic (20 October), Harrison said his initial reaction to the cheers that greeted that goal was simply “wow”.

The former England Under-21 international added: “It sounded like an 80,000-capacity stadium.”

Fast start

Garner got Everton up and running in that crucial win over Bournemouth and was superb in central midfield, but Harrison was arguably the best player on the pitch.

The winger scored a sublime goal and also assisted the third of the afternoon for Abdoulaye Doucoure to lift the clouds of doom above Goodison Park.

It was billed as a game Everton really had to win after a poor start to the campaign, and once that early Garner goal went in it was met with a mixture of relief and joy.

This weekend’s short trip to Liverpool is not exactly the best fixture for Everton as they look to build some momentum, but if they can match that performance from two weeks ago, who knows?

Harrison will certainly be in line for a start after putting his injury problem behind him and hitting the ground running since being integrated into the side.

With two goal involvements to his name already, Harrison is on his way to becoming a fan favourite on Merseyside.
