Exclusive: Paul Robinson picks top 3 Leeds players for 19/20, 22y/o gets Player of Season so far
We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
Paul Robinson has said that Ben White, Kalvin Phillips and Jack Harrison have been the three best Leeds players this season.
22-year-old Brighton loanee Ben White has been a revelation for Leeds, playing every single Championship game this season.
Robinson said that his form will have made it tough for Leeds to make his signing permanent in the summer.
Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News Robinson said, “I think the best three players for Leeds this season have been Ben White, Kalvin Phillips and Jack Harrison.
“At 22, White has developed into a top-class player but I’d be amazed if Leeds were able to hold onto him in the summer.
“Those three have been outstanding. Harrison’s end product is almost there – the goals just need to be a bit wider for him.
“He’s hit so much metal this season you feel for him. But he’s been outstanding for Leeds this season.
“Kalvin Phillips has missed a big part of the season so I think it needs to be one of the other two. So far, I’d give it to Ben White, Kalvin Phillips and Jack Harrison in that order.”
We’d probably go along with this at the moment.
Ben White had an incredible start to the season and while the defence had its issues over Christmas, five clean sheets in a row have put Leeds back on top of the league.
By contrast, Harrison is just getting better with every game he plays.
If the rest of the season plays out, Harrison could well end as the player of the season. For now, we’re happy with White getting the accolade.
