Former Leeds United striker Jermaine Beckford has hailed the importance of Kiko Casilla, Ben White and Kalvin Phillips on Sky Sports News.
Beckford said those three will be the difference in the promotion bid; hinting that the trio will get the club promoted if they stay fit but that their Premier League bid is in jeopardy otherwise.
When asked about Casilla, White and Phillips, Beckford said: “I don’t think they can live without any of them. All of them have been amazing players for Leeds United this season.
“Everything seems to start with those three players. They’re going to be the difference between making it to the Premier League.”
TBR’s View – Leeds must focus on pulling clear of third during festive period
Leeds do not need to be concerned by being top of the league at Christmas, like they were last season, and what West Brom are doing.
It’s far more important that they pull away from the play-off chasing pack, with none of the teams among it getting the right consistency yet.
Leeds and West Brom – in either order – can be well clear of the chasers by the time 2020 rolls around, leaving those below them knowing they’re scrapping for a play-off berth at best.
