Leeds star sends six-word Instagram message to Conor Gallagher, after Tuesday

Leeds secured a crucial 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Tuesday – and Kalvin Phillips has sent a six-word message to Conor Gallagher on Instagram.

Two of the biggest roars from the Elland Road crowd were for VAR handing Leeds an injury-time penalty – and Raphinha scoring it past Vicente Guaita.

But another of those roars came inside the first few moments of the game, when Leeds midfielder Phillips planted a crunching tackle on Gallagher.

Of course, the on-loan Chelsea midfielder was strongly linked with a move to Leeds in the summer. But he joined Palace, and he has sparkled since.

On Tuesday, there were glimpses of his quality but Phillips kept his England teammate quiet – a tackle which Leeds posted on their official Twitter.

STEVEN GERRARD TO ASTON VILLA IS WRONG.

What has Leeds star Phillips said to Palace loanee Gallagher?

Gallagher’s decision to join Palace from Chelsea instead of Leeds was a blow. The Athletic confirmed he was a player Marcelo Bielsa wanted.

Leeds failed to bring in a midfielder, like they had done the season before. Huddersfield’s Lewis O’Brien was linked, but a move did not materialise.

Gallagher’s incredible form is likely to give him the chance next summer to break into Chelsea’s first team – unless Palace can find a permanent deal.

What is clear, is that he is well-liked by some at Leeds – especially Phillips. Responding to the tackle, Phillips praised Gallagher with a six-word post.
