Fans of Leeds United have taken to Twitter to criticise the performance of United attacking midfielder, Tyler Roberts, in the Whites’ Premier League fixture against Southampton.
So far this season, Roberts has started just three Premier League fixtures for Marcelo Bielsa’s side, with a further 10 appearances coming from the bench.
Over these 13 fixtures, the £3.24 million-rated 22-year-old has not been in the most remarkable form, providing one assist and averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.23 – ranking him as the club’s joint fifth-worst performer in the top flight.
However, despite his shaky form, Bielsa opted to start Roberts against Southampton on Tuesday evening, although, despite providing the assist for Patrick Bamford’s opener, it would appear that the attacking midfielder’s performance did not best please many Leeds fans, with a great number taking to Twitter to share their frustrations.
Is Roberts good enough for Leeds?
So, what exactly did these Leeds United fans have to say in reaction to Tyler Roberts’ performance?
“Put Roberts in the bin.”
“Pitch is shocking. Roberts is shocking. How many successful passes has Llorente made? Should be winning this…”
“Roberts’ numbers re sprints must be the reason he starts, on the ball he’s terrible at this level.”
“Roberts is just terrible.”
“Roberts not good enough.”
“If Tyler Roberts is a footballer then I’m an astronaut! Get rid!”
“Please sell Roberts this summer. He’s literally the guy you hated playing football with runs into everyone elses’ space and takes it away.”
“Roberts is Championship level that’s why.”
“Roberts is more Sunday league than Premier league.”
“Roberts is bare greedy.”
All in all, it would appear that these Leeds fans are far from happy with the performance of Roberts, with some claiming that the 22-year-old is not good enough for the Premier League, while others simply stated their anger at his performance.
