Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips has heaped praise on Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.
The talented young England international has claimed that Salah is the best player he has played against in the Premier League so far.
The Egyptian managed to score a hat trick against Leeds United earlier in the season and it seems that he has managed to make quite an impression on the Leeds United midfielder.
Mohamed Salah is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world but the fact that the Leeds United star has played against Kevin De Bruyne this season and yet he is convinced that Salah is the best player he has come up against is massive praise for the Liverpool attacker.
Phillips said to BBC: “Mo Salah scored a hat-trick in that game. He’s the best player I have played against so far. He was so sharp. He’s just unbelievable”.
