Leeds United Suffer Injury Blow as Kalvin Phillips Dealt Time on Sidelines

Out for Remainder of the Season

The news comes ahead of a potential promotion-sealing victory over Barnsley on Thursday.

Marcelo Bielsa‘s side are six points clear of third-placed Brentford and nearing an inevitable return to the Premier League.

Should Brentford fail to beat Preston North End on Wednesday, a Leeds victory against Barnsley can seal their promotion after 16 years.

But the Whites’ Argentine boss has been dealt an injury blow as Phillips is to miss the final three matches of the season.

Phillips has scored twice in 40 appearances for the Championship leaders.

Ahead of Thursday’s clash, Bielsa said: “Kalvin [Phillips] is not going to play in Thursday’s match. We don’t know if he’s going to play the next two matches as well.”

He further explained: “He has a problem in the knee and probably is not going to be involved in the last three. But, in the worst scenario, it’s an injury we are going to resolve in four or five weeks.”

Phillips struggled through Leeds’ last-gasp victory at Swansea City at the weekend.

The midfielder completed the game but picked up a knock to his knee and had to wear strapping for the second half.

Leeds supporters have turned to social media to react to the news.
