Good enough to stay as a 4th choice?

Obvs fabinho can step in as DM, but with a decent 4th choice (alongside vvd or matip) then fabinho is free to resume his midfield duties.

Surely he needs to move somewhere to get first team football, he might get games here this season because of the injuries, but when everyone's fit he's probably 5th choice at best (after VVD, Gomez, Matip and Fabinho). At his age, 23 now, 24 by the time the season ends the harsh reality is it's time to move elsewhere. Hopefully he can leave having picked up a PL winners medal

If gomez and matip stay fit, then Philips is 4th choice assuming Fabinho isn't needed in midfield.

Given the way keita, thiago, ox and shaq are we really need fabinho back in our midfield, moving Philips up to 3rd choice.
He will get plenty of game time here and will be a useful player for us.

Yeah I can see him get more game time than anyone could have expected at the beginning of the season.

I didn’t realise Nat Phillips was Jimmy Phillips (Bolton and Boro player) ‘s son.

I'd agree.

His form is good though and he might be setting up another Edwards masterpiece if someone like Burnley want to cough up some money.

Old fashioned centre half. No libero , lacks pace , but in terms of aerial ability and strength hes an asset. Plus by the looks of him, after matches he goes back to his secluded lodge, wrestles bears and fells trees. Good on yer Nat.

That header when he nipped in ahead of Son at the end was great and I guess what he's all about. We need him to be superhuman over the next few weeks, but tbh I'm expecting some sort of calamity ffs.

Glad you're not part of our scouting department. We'd have signed half of the Championship by now.

God damn basic 6ft+ bruising centre half, but all heart & gives you everything he has.

Fair play to him, he is living the dream at present & good luck to him.

Anyone else think Klopp took him out early for the 2nd half, so Pep could drum in to the rest of the team how to protect him without shattering his confidence ;o)

might be a good point alright.....

I think he is a reasonably good footballer but just doesn't suit our high line game. When Leicester won the league, they did so with Huth and Wes Morgan as their defenders. In a different team that defend deep, then Phillips would be a very good player. Someone like West Brom, Sheff United, Stoke etc he'd be first choice.

Apart from that first dive in I thought he did well. He had good positioning, won all of his battles and even his passing was good. Not everyone can be like Virgil.

Yep, was pleased to see that he did well against dangerous opposition so will benefit from the confidence gained...will be utilised a bit more from here on in so will be useful from here on in. However, he will make mistakes but will learn from them with good coaching around him

The fact he had to play the whole half on a yellow, and did so, so well speaks volumes about him too. That header he won to take it away from son was awesome- if hes a millisecond off there, hes walking..

I think regardless of potential or where we see either of them being come the end of the season or a few years time IMO Phillips is the better option for us at the moment. He seems to have a street-wise knowledge of the game he's a fairly big unit and willing to take a booking for a cynical foul where necessary, Williams just seems a bit naive and that inexperience has cost us a couple of goals.

don't rate either but would have Philips ahead of Williams without question.

Solid today and that's all you want from him, never going to be a world beater but done well today imo. At least with him you know what you're going to get. Ahead of Williams every time. Good game again.

I have been calling for him to play rather than trying to let williams gain experience at the expense of our struggling team, we need to be solid at the back and Nat is no frills.
You're welcome.

Spot on mate! We're far better with him at the back, plus he's not made of Rice Crispies like Matip.

Many lads calling him a donkey, too slow, no prem experience, etc

Having the experience and foresight to not expose himself and then get caught out in a sprint (like joe gomez) will do for me.

Nah, many lads rightly saying he shouldn't be anywhere near our first team... but don't remember anyone on here saying he was worse than Williams.

He's always done well (within his ability) when he's played.

Many preferred the pace of williams rather than nat.

Decent again today. He sure knows how to get his head on the ball.

Just keep things simple and hes fine.

Just need to use him when we can play to his strengths.
