In the fixture itself, Phillips highly impressed, with the defensive midfielder winning six of his seven duels, as well as making four tackles, one interception and blocking one shot, all of which culminated in the £24.3 million-rated 25-year-old earning a SofaScore match rating of 7.4.
And, when reflecting on the 0-0 draw with Thomas Tuchel’s side on Twitter, Phillips praised the “solid performance” of his team, as well as highlighting the fact Illan Meslier kept yet another clean sheet against a “very good side”.
In reaction to his post, fans of Leeds then flocked to have their say on the matter, with many heaping a considerable amount of praise on the England international for his personal display against Chelsea.
Should Phillips make England's Euros squad?
So, what exactly did these Leeds United fans have to say in reaction to Kalvin Phillips’ post on Twitter?
“Unreal performance, Kalv – so good to have you back.”
“Get Ziyech out of your pocket.”
“You were immense today, Kalvin in midfield breaking up any dangerous attacks they were making.”
“Nice to have you back! Absolutely brilliant result today, keep it up!”
“You were immense again today.”
“You are twice the player Kante is.”
“My future captain!”
“Kalv you were immense again today mate.”
All in all, it would seem as if these Leeds United fans were over the moon with the performance of Phillips on Saturday, and, considering the fact the midfielder’s SofaScore match rating ranked him as the club’s second-best player in the fixture, it is not difficult to see why.
