Leeds United are set to start with Tyler Roberts up-front against Millwall.

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has suggested that Tyler Roberts will start up-front at the weekend, and the decision has drawn a mixed response.

Leeds are without both Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford when they take on Millwall at the weekend.

 

And Bielsa has suggested that Roberts will start up-front, in the absence of his two most senior strikers.

"The first option we have is Tyler Roberts. We have also other possibilities,” Bielsa said when speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

And while some Leeds fans are optimistic that Roberts will star.

There are some who are concerned that Bielsa has decided to pick the youngster to start.

Roberts joined Leeds in January, but injury has curtailed his progress so far.

It seemed that Roberts would be kept in reserve at Leeds this season, but it appears that he will get his big chance to stake a claim for a starting spot.
