KALVIN Phillips will make his third start for England in Wednesday night's Nations League clash at home to Denmark with the Leeds United midfielder already bagging his fourth cap.

Phillips came on as a 66th-minute substitute for Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson in Sunday's Nations League clash at home to Belgium and the Whites midfielder now starts from the outset with Henderson on the bench.

Phillips again looks set to form a central midfield partnership with West Ham's Declan Rice who keeps his place in the side.
