Leeds have managed seven goals in their opening two games, having followed up their 3-2 win at Bolton Wanderers with a 4-1 League Cup win over Port Vale on Wednesday.

Under Garry Monk, it took the Whites six matches to reach the seven-goal mark last season but Christiansen and Director of Football Victor Orta have recruited a plethora of attacking talent this summer, including Samu Saiz who bagged three in midweek.

And Phillips, who himself scored twice at Bolton last weekend, says that the new-look Whites side has plenty of threat in the final third of the pitch.

He told BBC Radio Leeds, when asked if the team's seven-goal haul so far is a taste of things to come: "Yeah we've got great players that have come in. Samu scored a hat-trick the other day and he's a great player.

"I believe all the players have something to offer. We're great going forward and I believe we've got a lot of goals in us."
