A really interesting player and key to the way bielsa wanted to play the past season, I’ll link a video later that explains his role, arguably the most improved player under him, this set will be tweaked as well edit: https://www.tifofootball.com/video/tact ... ds-united/

He has to go up, that 60 minutes or so against Arsenal in the cup was top notch recently. Bamford will be the reason if they don't go up along with Kiko going back to being ridiculously error prone. He needs to be up next year, by far the best all around DM in the league
This guy really might, and should, get an England call. He offers a complete package but yet something a bit different than Declan Rice. Rice is really good at calming down the game and reading play, which Phillips is as well. But, Phillips has a bit more of that athleticism to really break up play and make things happen. He’s got to go to the EPL next year with or without Leeds. Guy is a top class footballer and top 3 player in the league for sure. I’ll try to get more into what he does in the Bielsa system at a later date for those who aren’t aware of it since he is the thing that makes the whole machine work.
Yep, watching him do get the impression he could be the best option at the base of the midfield three, lessening the reliance on henderson, and given Southgate the option of playing 2 more attacking CM's. However sounds like there won't be any international football till next spring, and its still looking slim we do finish the 19/20 prem and EFL season, and that the 21/22 doesn't happen at all.
