Michael Owen says Brighton goal should not have stood on Saturday

Michael Owen says he believes Leeds forward Jack Harrison was fouled in the process of his own goal against Brighton.

The Whites had to come back twice on Saturday, as the game ended in a 2-2 draw. Harrison’s own goal was Brighton’s second of the game; it came from the forward attempting to clear the ball with his left foot, with Solly March sliding in from behind as the ball ended up in the net.

Owen believes Harrison was fouled during the build up, as he was clipped from behind:

“Personally, I think this is a foul. But not many people are going to agree with me,”

“I think he [Harrison] is about to clear that, I really do and I think he gets his foot clipped, then he ends up spooning into his own net.

“There is no way on earth he can kick that into his own net without it being fouled in the process.”

Leeds are away to Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend after taking points off Brighton.
