Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United will face Millwall in the Championship this weekend.

Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa has suggested to Leeds Live that Tyler Roberts could feature against Millwall this weekend.

Bielsa’s Leeds will take on Millwall away from home at The Den in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Strikers Patrick Bamford and Kemar Roofe are injured, while Roberts is fit and featured for Wales during the recent international break.

Leeds head coach Bielsa has suggested that the 19-year-old, who can also operate as a winger, could feature against Millwall.

Bielsa told Leeds Live when asked about options for him with Bamford and Roofe injured: “The first option we have is Tyler Roberts and we have also other possibilities.”

“He has made many efforts in the last international games he played, he played 40 minutes as a number nine and this is an option for us,” added Bielsa.

Taking the chance

Roberts has been at Leeds since January 2018 when he moved from West Bromwich Albion for a transfer fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £2.5 million.

The teenager failed to make any appearance in the Championship for the Whites last season due to injury.

The 19-year-old, though, has played 35 minutes in the Championship for Leeds so far this season, according to WhoScored.

Roberts is a very talented and promising young striker, and the teenager would not let Bielsa down if he starts against Millwall.
