'Outstanding' – talkSPORT pundit gushes over Leeds player with 'magic in his right foot'

Regular talkSPORT pundit Clinton Morrison has heaped praise on Kalvin Phillips after a standout display from the Leeds United midfielder. 

Talking on EFL on Quest on Saturday night (9pm) Morrison hailed Phillips and Patrick Bamford and said that Leeds would “definitely” get promoted to the Premier League.

“Brilliant… The first free-kick from Kalvin Phillips, who’s an outstanding player, he’s been brilliant for Leeds,” Morrison said. “That is top drawer. He’ll be a Premier League player whether it will be with Leeds… but I think it will be with Leeds. He’s got real magic in his right foot.”

Morrison also talked about three decisions in the game but went against Leeds in all of them.

He said that Mateusz Klich fouled Blackburn’s Lewis Travis ahead of the first goal, although he did add that it was a smart finish from Bamford.

Blackburn had a goal disallowed but Morrison said that there was no foul on Jack Harrison.

He also thought that Mateusz Klich’s goal should have been disallowed for offside.

Strangely, he didn’t mention the most controversial decision of the afternoon, with Christian Walton just getting a yellow after bringing Bamford down when the striker was clear through.

We’ll forgive Morrison for what he said next.

“Listen to what I’m going to say Leeds fans, I think you’ll definitely get promoted to the Premier League, you’ve been probably the outstanding team in the Championship and it will be good to see Leeds back in the Premier League.”

The win leaves Leeds six points clear of third and four points ahead of West Brom, who play Hull this afternoon.

Promotion is getting closer, one agonising game at a time, but it’s far from a definite yet.

If Brentford win all their remaining games (and they’ve won all four to nil since the season resumed), it could go all the way to the wire.
