Phillips played the full 120 minutes and speaking on BBC One, Lampard said: "I thought there were some great performances.

"Harry Maguire I thought was outstanding."

To which Lampard agreed: "Phillips was brilliant when you think of his journey and where he came from. Declan Rice as well until he came off."
