Leeds United suffered another defeat on Saturday in their home match against Brighton – but some of the club’s fans on Twitter did at least find one positivity from the performance of Tyler Roberts.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side went into the match off the back of losing 3-0 to Spurs in the Premier League, as well as being dumped out of the FA Cup by League Two Crawley Town.
The frustration continues for the Whites this weekend with a 1-0 loss at Elland Road in the league fixture against Brighton.
Neal Maupay finished off a well worked move for the visitors to score the winner in the 17th minute and they left with a throughly earned three points.
A selection of Leeds supporters on social media believe that Roberts was at least one player from their team that deserved a positive mention.
The 22-year-old Welsh attacker was substituted onto the pitch just after the hour mark, where he showed a great work-rate and looked lively around the penalty box with a couple of dangerous moments.
It was a contest where the Yorkshire club really struggled to attack with the same guile they usually do, but Roberts was at least one positive.
Here are some Leeds fans discussing Roberts:

As surprising as it is, Tyler Roberts was the only player who showed a bit of anything positive. Shocking display today #lufc

Harrison and Roberts the only two players that actually wanted to win that game, the rest were embarrassing. #lufc

Bar the goal which tbh wasn't kikos fault he did well today and Roberts came off the bench and put a shift in, but we are short of the quality in midfield for sure we need to get into the market! #lufc
