Leeds fans loving the midfield pairing of Forshaw and Phillips

Leeds United fans on Twitter have been praising the midfield pivot of Kalvin Phillips and Adam Forshaw after their showing against Aston Villa. The pairing added some much-needed grit in the centre of the park.

Phillips was initially dropped for Forshaw in the Brentford game last Monday but the Argentine opted to use the duo together for Sunday’s game at Elland Road.

Leeds looked impenetrable in the midfield and the pairing did an exceptional job of keeping tabs on Jack Grealish, limiting the amount of time he got on the ball all afternoon.

The performance at the weekend seems to have united the fanbase in the view that the duo had added something to the side that had previously been missing.

With the playoffs coming up supporters believe that Marcelo Bielsa has found the perfect lineup at just the right time as his team face the three most important games of the season next month.
