Leeds United massively missed Kalvin Phillips against Arsenal last weekend and all associated with the club will be gutted to hear the latest update provided on the midfielder ahead of the game against Wolves.
Journalist provides Phillips injury update
The Yorkshire Evening Post’s Joe Urquhart was at Marcelo Bielsa’s press conference and reported that the Englishman is ‘still out’ of action, and with no word on a possible return date either. So, for now it seems like the club is taking it game by game.
This is a huge blow for Leeds
It has truly been a remarkable 12 months for the £24.30m-valued ace. He has been vital in getting the club back into the Premier League, and and has also become an England player, with Gareth Southgate seemingly growing fond of the player (Transfermarkt).
He is a big reason as to why Leeds currently sit eleventh in the Premier League, as he has managed 2.7 tackles, 1.6 interceptions and 1.8 clearances a game (WhoScored).
Former LUFC striker Noel Whelan highlighted just how ‘integral’ he is to the Yorkshire club when he gave his thoughts recently to Football Insider over Phillips’ injury.
A player like him in midfield will be sorely missed against Wolves.
