Roberts has impressed for Leeds since replacing Kemar Roofe in the side.

Tyler Roberts' excellent recent form for Leeds United has seen him earn a call-up to Wales' squad once again this month, but that has not stopped his teammates from poking fun at him on Instagram.

Roberts, 19, has scored three goals for Leeds in six Championship appearances, after a difficult start to life at Elland Road since his £2.5million move (Yorkshire Evening Post) from West Bromwich Albion back in January.

The versatile attacker suffered an ankle injury in training immediately after joining the Whites and failed to make a single appearance for Leeds in 2017-18. But after injuries to Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford, Roberts got a chance.

A superb brace against Preston as well as the all-important winner against Hull with an excellent strike from 25 yards has seen him impress, but Tom Pearce and Izzy Brown teased Leeds' number 11 on Instagram by commenting on his post.

Roberts asked fans to "caption this", and Chelsea loanee Brown reacted by teasing Roberts over his physique while Pearce eluded to the striker's toe injury, which the Yorkshire Evening Post claimed he had played through against Hull.

Brown is yet to play for Leeds after joining on loan from Chelsea in the summer, as he continues to overcome an anterior cruciate ligament injury that he suffered while with Brighton in January.

Meanwhile, Pearce remains way down the pecking order of left-backs at Elland Road following the signing of Barry Douglas in the summer. Gaetano Berardi and now Stuart Dallas seem to be above the 20-year-old.

It remains to be seen if Roberts will start up front against Blackburn Rovers next time out, with Roofe returning to action with the Under-23's last week and likely to be fit for the trip to Ewood Park.
