Leeds United fans have been reacting to the performance of Tyler Roberts during their loss to Arsenal at the weekend.
Roberts has been something of a bit-part player ever since Marcelo Bielsa took over at Leeds United, only occasionally getting a solid run of minutes in the first-team, so when he does get the chance to get on the pitch like he did during his 45-minute spell at the Emirates, he has to make the most of it if he’s going to show Marcelo Bielsa that he belongs in the team.
And impress he did, as his WhoScored rating showed that he was the second-best Leeds United player on the day with a rating of 7.0, only bettered by Pascal Struijk’s 7.5, which led to many Leeds United fans on social media insisting that he be given more chances in the starting eleven moving forward:
“He’s been like a different player since he returned from injury. I really want it to work for him here”
The Wales international, valued at £3.24m on Transfermarkt, was subject to several approaches from Championship side Derby County in the January transfer window, and whilst Leeds rejected all of them, it does suggest that his future at Elland Road could be under threat at any time. So the more of these performances he puts in, the better he has of sticking around.
