Phillips is a fantastic player. Proper snobbery going on here just because he's not on your radar.
I'm just judging him on what I saw last night, he played 95% of his passes backwards, was grim to watch.
Even when he had space to turn and drive forward he'd just pop it backwards to a defender or at best sideways to Winks, but those sideways passes were even few and far between.
Think I saw him play one forward pass in the 60 odd minutes I watched.
