Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Leeds star Kalvin Phillips’s display

The Gunners are into the fourth round of the competition after a narrow win over Marcelo Bielsa’s side. Reiss Nelson scored the game’s only goal during the second-half.

Leeds were superb during the opening stages of the game. They came incredibly close to scoring on a number of occasions, and played some outstanding football to create chances.
