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.

Edmondson would relish Millwall away— Silky (@silkyjohn30) September 13, 2018
It's make or break for Roberts— Al Barrie (@White_Rose_Al) September 14, 2018
Big day for Tyler. Needs to show he can do it up front after 2 underwhelming performances out wide— Finding Aapo (@WookieHoney) September 13, 2018
Roberts looked impressive coming on as sub for Wales. Give him a go.— Dave Evans (@davee_evans) September 13, 2018
19 year old with just 50 or so professional games. Is a big challenge for him. And don’t forget the lads who’ve been on international break. #barebones— Northern Lifer (@northernlifer) September 13, 2018
He is awful— dave walkerstein (@DWalkerstein) September 13, 2018
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.
