Leeds need attacker Tyler Roberts to kick on again in 2019/20 season

Leeds United attacker Tyler Roberts enjoyed a breakout year this season at Ellnad Road, but there should be plenty more to come from him.

The Whites signed him back in January 2018 for £2.5million (Yorkshire Evening Post), but he had to wait until this campaign to make his senior debut due to an injury.

He’s finished the season with 31 first-team games under his belt for Leeds, scoring three goals and supplying six assists in return.

The Wales international has impressed at times for the Yorkshire giants and shown no problem in stepping up to Championship level for the first time.

 

Roberts is a versatile attacher that played a number of positions in Marcelo Bielsa’s team, including as an attacking midfielder, centre-forward and a winger.

After a good taste of senior football, he needs to try kick on another gear in the 2019/20 campaign.

Roberts will be helped massively if he can fix down one position in the team, as his versatility can also be a downfall at times.

He’s got an incredible work-rate that makes him a real asset to the team, but needs to try become more clinical with his finishing and decision making in the final third.

The 20-year-old has time on his side to improve as a player, but he should set himself some ambitious individuals goal to try achieve over the next year.
