United fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest post from Whites midfielder Kalvin Phillips. 

This comes after Phillips shared a post on his official Twitter page that contained four images of himself in action during Leeds’ recent 2-0 win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Nice easy one to start off with, what number does Phillips wear for Leeds United?

In his caption, Phillips said that the result against Palace was a “great win” for the team on his 200th appearance for the Yorkshire club.

The midfielder also said that he has “lots of reasons to smile” due to Leeds picking up their first clean sheet of 2021 and that they now find themselves in the top half of the Premier League table.

Phillips also congratulated his teammate Patrick Bamford after the striker picked up his 100th career goal after scoring against Palace.

But, arguably the biggest thing to come from Phillips’ update is the fact that he’ said he’ll be preparing for Sunday’s clash after coming off with an apparent injury.

This post from the Englishman then gathered a lot of replies from who were not shy in sharing their messages to the midfielder.

So, what did these Leeds fans have to say in response to Phillips’ Twitter post?

Looking at the replies to this post, it’s clear to see that these Leeds fans are huge admirers of Phillips and are delighted that he has made so many appearances for the club throughout his career.

Given how Phillips has managed to earn himself a solid season rating of 7.06/10 for his performances in the league so far this season, making him Leeds’ third-highest rated player, it’s understandable why these Leeds fans want to see Phillips make another 200 appearances for the club.
