I never saw KP ever making this level, I was wrong. He has done incredibly and is gifted player and a lovely man (although his fashion sense is a bit mad don't know if you saw the pic Swannie).
But do I think Rice is a better all round player right now? Yes and it has nothing to do with "my glorious Rice" or anything so sarcastic.
He is younger, he scores more goals, he beats KP in almost every stat, pass accuracy, goals, assists, tackles, interceptions, clearances, chances created, dribbles etc per game, all Rice (he also is far less injury prone).
The stats show that Rice has a more rounded game (which was all I said) he creates chances he scores goals he runs with the ball, all things KP doesn't do and that imo shows he is a more rounded player as things stand
Can KP do it? Maybe, but let's not forget that before Bielsa as a box to box midfielder when he was the same age Rice is now KP was a bang average Championship player.
KP did win that international award (it wasn't universally agreed with by any means if you remember) but he won it and fair play to him.
Was nice to see a LUFC player win it.
However based on what I have seen and read and the evidence and taking the Leeds fan bias away then Declan Rice is a more rounded player than Kalvin Phillips imo.
However you do love our local lads (Bailey) so I understand your attack
