‘It’s a bit surprising’ – Bielsa to hand 3-goal man a start for Leeds v Norwich: Opinion



With the January transfer window behind him, Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa will be firmly concentrating on the upcoming Championship match against second placed Norwich City this weekend.

Bielsa has already published his starting XI for the match, that includes 20-year-old Tyler Roberts who will be making his 13th appearance in the Championship for Leeds this season.

The Welshman has scored three goals in the Championship this season, and has found first-team minutes somewhat hard to come by at Elland Road since arriving.

So is Bielsa right to start Roberts against Norwich?

We discuss…..

Louie Chandler

“It’s a bit surprising.

“I assume he will either be in the number ten role or out wide depending on where Bielsa wants to play Hernandez.

“But Roberts has been a trusty player when called upon this season so it should not be worry for the Whites.”

Gary Hutchinson

“If they’re good enough, they’re old enough.

“With the lack of new faces, we’re going to see it more and more this season.

“Roberts is a decent player, but is he top two material?

“I’m not so sure he is.”

Jay Taylor

“It’s a curveball, for sure.

“But if he has trained well and proven his worth – why not.

“Bielsa’s meticulous planning will mean he thinks the attacker has something about his game that will be a threat to the Canaries.

“It remains to be seen if his gamble pays off, I am not so sure.”
