Kalvin Phillips insists team-mate Raphinha has got 'everything' after the wide man bagged Leeds United's winning goal at Everton.

Marcelo Bielsa's men toppled Carlo Ancelotti's outfit 1-0 at Goodison Park in an enthralling top flight encounter.

The clash on Merseyside saw a combined 38 attempts on goal as both sides committed to attacking football.

It was the Whites, though, who edged out the Toffees as summer deadline day signing Raphinha scored his first goal for his new club on just his second Premier League start.

The Brazilian winger gathered the ball on the edge of the box 10 minutes from time and rifled a low effort past England stopper Jordan Pickford to hand Leeds all three points.

Phillips - who has been suitably impressed by the former Stade Rennes man since his arrival - believes it was only a matter of time before he found the back of the net.

"He's very good. He's got everything," Phillips said post-match of his team-mate.

"To come into the side shortly after he's been signed, he's done excellent. I think that goes down to us integrating him well into the squad and him working hard.

"We started well, got on the front foot and were creating chances. We knew eventually it would come. We just had to defend well and I thought we did that.

"It's a special moment for Rapha. I've been telling him he was going to score a goal whenever he got a chance."

Asked about his own performance, which saw him claim the man-of-the-match award, he added: "Obviously I'm pleased when we win, but it's all about the team.

"If the team doesn't play well, I don't play well. It comes down to individual efforts but it's collectively as a team. The manager has talked about that every week.

"We haven't got one really good individual player. We're a team and we work hard as a team to get results."
