Leeds United have been flying under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa this season and one of the stand-out improvements has been the nurturing of previously under-performing players into key assets.

The entire squad has increased significantly under Bielsa’s leadership but few have caught the eye as much as Kalvin Phillips, who has not missed a single Championship match so far this season and is a key player for the Argentine boss.

Still just 23, Phillips stands as evidence of the strength of Leeds’ academy and presents the perfect path for the likes of Tyler Roberts and Jack Clarke to follow in the coming years after he established himself as a fan favourite.

Celebrating his birthday this week, one fan on Twitter took the opportunity to share some intriguing statistics about Phillips’ performances this season and it attracted a wealth of responses from other supporters.

We have gathered some of their comments below.
