Leeds: Worrying Kalvin Phillips injury update emerges

Leeds: Worrying Kalvin Phillips injury update emerges -Leeds United News

Phil Hay has confirmed that Kalvin Phillips is suffering from a hip issue as well as a calf strain following Leeds United’s defeat to Southampton at the weekend.

The Lowdown: Leeds suffer disappointing loss

The Whites were beaten 1-0 at St Mary’s on Saturday afternoon, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side delivering a disappointing performance on their return to Premier League action.

Leeds never got going throughout the game and were deservedly beaten, and the defeat leaves them sitting 17th in the table.

The Latest: Hay provides worrying update

Someone who played no part in proceedings was Phillips, who was deemed unfit to feature having also missed England’s draw with Hungary in midweek.

Taking to Twitter after the game, Hay provided a worrying 10-word update, claiming that the 25-year-old is actually battling two separate injuries at the moment. He tweeted that Phillips has “also been suffering from a bit of a hip problem”.

The Verdict: Concerning news

This is concerning news from a Leeds perspective because it suggests that Phillips could face a longer spell on the sidelines than initially predicted if he is battling two separate fitness issues.

The midfielder is such a vital player for the Whites – his tough-tackling presence was badly missed against Saints – and they could find themselves in a relegation scrap without him around if they’re not careful.

Hopefully he is back sooner rather than later, as Leeds desperately try to find some momentum this season, with Phillips among several players in Bielsa’s squad to have been afflicted by injuries of late.

In other news, Leeds could be able to sign one transfer target in January. Find out who it is here.
