Kalvin Phillips

Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to express their reactions to the performance of Kalvin Phillips against Liverpool. 

The Whites are yet to pick up their first victory of the season as they lost 3-0 against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon at Elland Road.

Goals from Mohamed Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Mane sealed all three points for Jurgen Klopp’s side. Leeds did create a few half-chances, but they weren’t clinical enough to make it count.

Liverpool were dominant throughout the game, and the Reds enjoyed the lion-share of possession. The loss of Pascal Struijk (red carded following his challenge on Harvey Elliott) didn’t help either, but Liverpool were comfortable throughout the game.

Apart from Phillips (and to a certain extent Raphinha), not a single Leeds player stepped up against the Reds. The likes of Rodrigo and Stuart Dallas failed to provide a tough challenge in midfield, and it was left with Phillips to take the massive workload all on himself.

The England international was outstanding during the game. His ability to spray out diagonal balls and spread the game wide is a joy to watch. At the same time, he was very good with his defensive shifts, making two tackles and two interceptions.

Leeds fans are absolutely spot on that he was their best player on the pitch. Here are some of the selected tweets:
