Leeds United have moved into the automatic places after their win against Birmingham City.

Kalvin Phillips has claimed that he has ‘never heard anything like it’ as he was making reference to the noise the Elland Road crowd were making during Leeds United’s 1-0 win against Birmingham on Saturday. 

It was a special occasion for Leeds because after celebrating their 100th birthday on Thursday, the club legends were also invited to watch Marcelo Bielsa’s side in action against the Blues. 

The legends were paraded around the pitch, as Leeds fans were in fine voice, as they were in even buoyant mood when Phillips scored the only goal of the game. 

After the match, Phillips paid tribute to the Elland Road faithful, as the Leeds supporters will be absolutely delighted with what he had to say. 

“It was a great atmosphere,” Phillips told LUFC TV. “I’ve never heard anything like it, to be fair and with the legends coming before the game, the crowd were like a 12th man out there all the time. Thanks to the fans and I’m glad they have all had a good week.”

It was fitting that it was Phillips who scored the winning goal for Leeds given the week the club has had, as he will no doubt will want to add more goals to his game this season. 

Leeds were beaten by Millwall before the international break, as they bounced back by securing maximum points against the Blues. 

Now, Bielsa and Leeds will turn their attention to Preston and facing an Alex Neil side who are sitting in the play-off places and can go above the Whites if they beat them at Deepdale on Tuesday night.
