Leeds United fans react as Kalvin Phillips is ruled out for the season

The midfielder won’t play a part in the club’s final three games of the season.

Leeds United have been dealt an injury blow today with Marcelo Bielsa confirming that Kalvin Phillips will miss the club’s last three games of the season.

The Whites midfielder has picked up a knee injury and the club confirmed the news on their official website ahead of Thursday’s game with Barnsley.

Phillips has been instrumental to Leeds’ fortunes this season, playing 40 times in all competitions.

Leeds are on the brink of promotion to the Premier League and could see their place in next season’s top-flight confirmed on Thursday.

The Whites should be able to cope without their influential midfielder but it has got some supporters worried a bit.

The 24-year-old has been one of Bielsa’s better players throughout the campaign and he will be a loss.

With Barnsley, Derby and Charlton still to play, Leeds will hope they can fill the void and win promotion.

Phillips will hope that the next time he pulls on a white shirt it will be in preparation for a Premier League game.

He has worked tirelessly to put his hometown club back in the top flight and deserves it as much as anyone.

Following the devastating news, we looked at a string of tweets from supporters with Phillips set for five weeks out.
