Many Leeds United fans heaped praise on midfielder Kalvin Phillips following his side’s 3-0 victory against Fulham on Saturday.

The victory saw them jump back to the top of the Championship after West Bromwich Albion lost to Brentford 1-0 on Friday.

Patrick Bamford, Ezgjan Alioski and Jack Harrison scored all three goals, behind closed doors, that saw Marcelo Bielsa’s side return to the summit and edged closer to their long-awaited return to the Premier League for the first time since 2004.

Was Kalvin Phillips one of Leeds' best players vs Fulham?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Phillips caught the eye of the Elland Road faithful in what was an underappreciated, hard-working display from the 24-year-old, and won 10 duels, made six tackles, completed six long balls and accumulated a pass success rate of 82%, as per Sofascore.

Because of this, supporters were full of praise for Phillips and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he “showed another side to his game”, while another described him as “massively underrated”.
