Leeds fans praise ‘amazing’ Kalvin Phillips after Sheffield United win

Kalvin Phillips showed his versatility by dropping into defence during the win over Sheffield United on Saturday – and some of the Leeds United fans on Twitter went wild about the quality of his performance.

The 22-year-old stood firm at centre-back for the Whites, as he dropped deeper from his usual midfield role.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side recorded an impressive 1-0 away victory against Sheffield United, as they showed the kind of gritty display that can help teams get promoted.

A selection of Leeds fans on social media believe Phillips was once again a major factor in their win, as he proved his flexibility in switching positions with ease.

The club’s academy graduate has been involved in every league game so far and his importance to Bielsa’s system can’t be overestimated.

There have been a number of players to come out of the academy at Elland Road in recent years and Leeds will hope they can keep hold of their latest product.

Here are some of the Leeds fan tweets on Phillips’ efforts against Sheffield United:
