The England international is nursing his injury and it would take around March for him to return to action.
Losing him for such a long period of time is a huge blow for the club, and it remains to be seen how the Whites cope up in his absence.
Adam Forshaw has been superb since he returned from injury, but Leeds are lacking the massive presence of Phillips on the pitch.
With Jamie Schakleton also out injured, Bielsa doesn’t have enough options in midfield at the moment. Leeds could delve into the January transfer market to solve the crisis.
The Whites were boosted by the return of Diego Llorente and Junior Firpo, but with Patrick Bamford still not fully fit, they struggled a bit upfront.
Tyler Roberts missed a glorious opportunity to score, but Joe Gelhardt did impress after coming on in the second half.
