Kalvin Phillips shares brilliant message after Leeds United draw 1-1 v Brighton

Leeds United moved out of the drop zone after earning a crucial point against Brighton on Sunday (15 May) at Elland Road in the Premier League.

Jesse Marsch’s side looked to be edging closer to relegation after Danny Welbeck gave Brighton a deserved first-half lead.

However, in the dying minutes of the game, Pascal Struijk scored for the home side to salvage a crucial point.

The Whites midfielder Kalvin Phillips wrote on Twitter after the game: “Staying positive, and we’ll keep fighting.

“Thanks for all of your support at Elland Road this season, the atmosphere has been unbelievable.”

Tense affair

The fate of the three teams will likely be decided on the final day of the season.

Leeds have picked up a crucial point but will it be enough to secure their Premier League status?

Everton could have secured their Premier League safety on Sunday with a win against Brentford, but following their defeat, they are still not out of danger yet.

Burnley lost 1-0 against Tottenham Hotspur and it will be very tight, although they have a game in hand.

The Clarets face Aston Villa and Newcastle, and it won’t be easy to get a victory out of those games.

Leeds will face the final game away from home against Brentford, and they may have to win that match.

Phillips has pledged his commitment to the club, time and again, but he is likely to leave in the summer if the Whites get relegated.

Survival is still out of Leeds’ hands at the moment, but there is still hope.
