Leeds United suffered their second consecutive heavy defeat in the English Championship on Wednesday night, this time losing 3-0 at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Following a demoralising loss away to Middlesbrough at the weekend, fans were hoping for a reaction at Elland Road but were left bitterly disappointed with the performance from Paul Heckingbottom’s side.
Wolves came into the match on a three-match winless streak, but overpowered the Whites in front of their own supporters, winning thanks to goals from Romain Saiss, Willy Boly and Benik Afobe.
One player that Leeds supporters were especially disappointed with was Kalvin Phillips, who failed to show the fight and determination in the heart of midfield that’s required to win games in the Championship.
Despite being a homegrown talent, fans are rapidly losing patience with the 22-year-old, some calling for him to be sold in the summer.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…
Someone please explain though, what Phillips offers? #lufc

While I’m moaning Phillips has had a free ride for most of the season cause he’s from the academy. Face it if he was good he’d of gone in the summer. Brings absolutely nothing. #lufc

I really don't want to watch Phillips start every week for another season. Never seen a centremid so scared of the ball, he constantly takes up positions that mean he's never available for a pass. Complete passenger #lufc

Phillips is still on the pitch at 80 minutes, just let that sink in. #lufc

Just if you can, watch Phillips.. ignore the ball.. he avoids any type of contact or challenge with their players.. he is in acres of space on his own at all times. He hasn't got the heart to be in this team, even though he is one of our own. We need someone that battles.. #lufc

Phillips is abysmal, my god. Get rid asap #lufc

I’ve defended Phillips alot in the past but he just isnt even trying, which I can’t understand when he’s one of our own, that for me shows moral is low in the dressing room #lufc

Phillips is a waste of space he offers nothing to defence or attack #lufc
