Plenty of Leeds United fans have bemoaned the exclusion of Kalvin Phillips from the EFL’s Championship Team of the Week.
The Yorkshire-born midfielder didn’t make the XI, although Luke Ayling did following his winner against Bristol City (EFL via LUFC). Phillips was in superb form against the Robins as he dominated in defence and attack for Marcelo Bielsa’s side, playing the most key passes and making the joint-most interceptions, the joint-most clearances and the joint-second most tackles (via WhoScored).
His performance was lauded by retired striker Clinton Morrison, who claimed he will be in the Premier League next season, even if Leeds don’t reach the top-flight (via BBC). Indeed, the player has been linked with a move away from the club, with Manchester United said to be impressed by him (via Football Insider).
Will Kalvin Phillips leave Leeds in 2020?
Some Leeds fans were bemused at the 24-year-old’s omission from the team of the week as they took to Twitter to question the decision, which one supporter labelled “a joke”. Here are some of the replies:
