Leeds United: Fans were delighted with Tyler Roberts’ performance

Leeds United fans were jubilant on Twitter after witnessing Tyler Roberts’ display against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites managed to return to the top of the Championship standings with their 2-0 win against the London-based outfit, with thanks to goals from the Wales international and Jack Harrison in each half.

Roberts, who was perhaps only in the starting XI because of an injury suffered by Arsenal loanee Eddie Nketiah in training, made his chance count as he registered his first goal of the season (Sky Sports).

According to figures collected by LUFCDATA, the attacker managed to achieve 42 touches, make 21 successful passes out of 26 attempted, with seven out of 10 in the final third of the pitch, had six touches in the opposition box, won four ground duels and took three shots which led to two being on target. He also attempted two crosses and created a further two opportunities for his team-mates to score from.

Indeed, fans were delighted with what they saw from the 20-year-old, leading to many of them taking to Twitter to laud his performance for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

Many of them believed Roberts was their man of the match, whilst some called for the manager to use him more often in the near future.

Here are just some of their reactions to his performance…
