What an honour for Phillips
It’s been some season for Phillips, who has taken the Premier League by storm and played himself into the England squad.

It will be a very proud moment to get one of the BBC’s flagship shows to devote a feature to him but it’s fully deserved.
He came close to leaving Leeds after we failed to get through the play-offs but a combination of Bielsa and his loyalty to the club kept him at Elland Road.
If we hadn’t been promoted last season he probably would have left, along with Bielsa, and it’s hard to imagine that sliding doors possibility.
Thankfully, it all worked out for Leeds, at a canter in the end, and Phillips has become one of the most talked-about defensive midfielders in the country.
We can’t wait to see the interview as Ian Wright chews the fat with the Yorkshire Pirlo.
