Tyler Roberts could be at risk from Kemar Roofe’s return for Leeds

Leeds United have seven games remaining to try get over the line in the Championship and achieve their dream of a return to the Premier League.

Marcelo Biesla has confirmed (Yorkshire Evening Post) that Kemar Roofe will be back in the first-team squad at the weekend following his injury absence, which will be a serious boost for the promotion run-in.

He’s been a main starter for the Whites when fit this campaign and he will surely break back into the starting XI

That could lead Bielsa to make changes to a fairly settled side and Tyler Roberts may be at risk from the axe following the return of his teammate.

Roberts, who cost Leeds £2.5million (Yorkshire Evening Post) has been given a run in the side during the last couple of months and impressive.


The 20-year-old has now scored three times and assisted five this season, which highlights the potential of the Wales international.

He’s been impressing in an attacking midfield role with his energy and creativity.

Bielsa will be left with the choice to recall Roofe into the number 10 role at the expense of Roberts, or he could make a straight swap with centre-forward Patrick Bamford.

Roberts should be safe to stay in the team based on current form, but Leeds paid up to £10million (BBC) in the summer for Bamford and it could be difficult to leave him out.
