Leeds: Tyler Roberts under fire for Tottenham display

Leeds: Tyler Roberts under fire for Tottenham display - Leeds United News

Tyler Roberts was withdrawn before the hour mark as Leeds United faced Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday lunchtime.

Roberts started in the centre of the park alongside Mateusz Klich – Bielsa has now selected the Welshman for 11 consecutive games.

The numbers behind Roberts’ performance

Roberts was awarded a rating of 6.6 by SofaScore for his 58 minutes on the pitch.

Raphinha came on in his place with Leeds 2-1 up, making his return from the injury that had sidelined him for Leeds’ last two matches – the Brazilian later provided the assist for Rodrigo’s goal.

Roberts touched the ball just 32 times – fewer than Whites keeper Illan Meslier (36) – and attempted a mere 20 passes, 14 of which were successful.

The 22-year-old lost three of his five ground duels and ceded possession on seven occasions.

He also had two cracks at goal, one of which was blocked while the other was off target.

Here’s what Leeds fans on Twitter had to say about his performance against Spurs.
