It speaks volumes about how good Leeds United were against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday when they can have two players named in the EFL’s Championship team of the week and fans are still dissatisfied.
The Whites took another huge step towards the Premier League with a 3-1 win over Blackburn Rovers, and both Kalvin Phillips and Barry Douglas were rewarded for their efforts with a nod from the governing body.
But many supporters are taking to Twitter to argue the case that Mateusz Klich and Ben White should have been included too.
And while White has been a paragon of consistency all season long, it’s really impressive that Klich is getting so much love after his questionable form of late.
The Poland international has been so under the weather, in fact, that MOT Leeds News took an in-depth look at what was going wrong just last week.
His outing got our Super Fans purring on Saturday though, and it looks like that admiration was spread widely among the fanbase writ large.
It’s not hard to see why either.
His pass completion shot up by 15% compared to his display against Luton Town, while his dribble success and shot accuracy rates were both 100%, as per Wyscout.
In other words, this was a near flawless performance from a man who is so often pivotal to Leeds’ success, but who doesn’t always get the attention that he deserves.
That being said, if he can help drag Leeds to a Premier League return after 16 years in the wilderness, that will surely be enough gratification for him.

Is there a rule they can't include Ben White? #lufc

Innit, tbf i think it should’ve been Klich instead of Phillips as well. Phillips was sick and obviously scored that free kick but I just think Klich was different gravy
