‘Deserves a game’, ‘Idiots’ – These Leeds fans react as Kalvin Phillips credentials placed under the spotlight

Published

England manager Gareth Southgate reportedly wants to see Kalvin Phillips tested more at Premier League level before he calls him up to the national team squad, which is at odds with the stance of many Leeds United fans.

The 24-year-old has been a key man for Leeds over the past two seasons and appears to have taken his game to another level since the arrival of Marcelo Bielsa.

First of all, what was the biggest winning margin from the 2018/19 season?

Phillips earned himself a place in the EFL Team of the Season last term and has been in impressive form again in the 2019/20 campaign–receiving the highest average rating of any player in his position (Whoscored).

The defensive midfielder is integral to Bielsa’s system, as he is comfortable dropping back into the backline and stepping up to join attacks.

Holding midfield is an area that England are currently a bit lacking, with few consistent options outside Jordan Henderson, and Andy Hinchcliffe has told The Athletic that he thinks Phillips deserves a chance.

Southgate was at Elland Road to watch Leeds’ 2-0 loss to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday but Phil Hay has reported that people around Phillips believe the Three Lions boss wants to see him tested more at Premier League level.

That doesn’t seem to be a stance taken by many fans of the Yorkshire club, who took to Twitter to express their thoughts.
