Ridiculous: Leeds fans blast Phillips over surprise pre-match comments

Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips has joked that his team can ‘sit back and watch Sheffield United get beat’ on Wednesday providing that they win away at Preston North And on Tuesday night.

Leeds lost to Birmingham City at the weekend, which was a result that saw them drop to third, one point off second-placed Sheffield United.

The Blades are in action away at Birmingham on Wednesday, 24 hours after Leeds will attempt to return to winning ways.

It would be fair to say that Phillips’ words have not gone down well with the Leeds supporters, however, with a number taking to social media to criticise the midfielder.

The comments were quite strange ahead of what is a huge match and it leaves the Whites open to ridicule if they were to suffer another defeat at Preston.
