Marcelo Bielsa will have plenty of reasons to leave Bramall Lane pleased, after his Leeds United side went on to beat Sheffield United 1-0, thanks to Patrick Bamford’s 88th-minute header.
His side was able to keep their first clean sheet back in the Premier League, while it was an impressive performance from his team, with plenty of individuals putting in performances that are deserving of plaudits.
However, Tyler Roberts can not be considered within that group, having been an invisible figure on the pitch, before being taken off for Rodrigo at half time.
It’s difficult to find too many areas in which the 21-year-old, who was operating in midfield, actually made much of an impact during his time in the game.
He didn’t make any tackles, interceptions or clearances, while he also wasn’t dribbled past. He did win one of the two aerial duels that he competed in.
The Wales international also didn’t have much of an impact in an attacking sense, as he didn’t get any shots off, make any key passes or attempt any dribbles, while he was dispossessed once.
He didn’t actually make that many passes in general play either, completing 12 of the 17 that he attempted in his 45 minutes.
Especially now that they have taken the step up to the Premier League, Bielsa is going to be demanding the absolute best from his players on a regular basis, as he meticulously looks to continue his success at Elland Road.
It’s not the first time either having flopped during their Carabao Cup defeat to Hull City two weeks ago.
Roberts is going to have to do much more if he is to reach that level – if he doesn’t, he is surely putting his place in the team at risk.
