Adam Forshaw will miss the match against Swansea City, but since Leeds have Kalvin Phillips, is that really such a big deal?

Kalvin Phillips has been used at central defender almost as much as defensive midfielder this season, and while he’s filled in brilliantly at centre-back, he’s best when he’s deployed as a defensive midfielder. Everything just works so much better with him in that role.

So while missing Forshaw will test the depth of the Leeds midfield, Phillips probably should be starting there anyway.

On to the links.
