'Unbelievable': Pundit really impressed by Tyler Adams since Leeds move

Jason Cundy has told talkSPORT that he would consider Tyler Adams for his Premier League team of the season so far, labelling his performance in Leeds United’s win over Chelsea ‘unbelievable’.

It has been a promising start to the campaign for Jesse Marsch’s side. They sit in mid-table and have a game in hand over almost every single side below them in the league.

Undoubtedly, the high point so far came when Leeds beat Chelsea 3-0 at Elland Road. The Whites were electric against the Blues, with the likes of Brenden Aaronson and Jack Harrison stealing the show going forward.

But Leeds were superb across the park that day. And the pair of Adams and Marc Roca proved a real point in the middle of the park.

There were a lot of questions surrounding how the two summer signings would fare. Leeds lost the previous fulcrum of their side in Kalvin Phillips in the last window.

But Adams and Roca have arguably proved to be two of Leeds’ best players.

‘He was absolutely superb’

Roca’s quality has not gone unnoticed, by any means. But Adams is well on his way to becoming a real fan favourite for Leeds.

The USMNT international has been outstanding when it comes to reading the game, breaking up opposition attacks and retaining possession when he does get on the ball.

TalkSPORT were putting together a team of the Premier League season so far. And when a Leeds supporter put Adams’ name forward, Cundy suggested that his display against Chelsea really stuck with him.

“He was unbelievable. The pair of them were unbelievable, honestly,” he told talkSPORT. “The thing is you’re going on assists and goals because they catch the eye, but what doesn’t necessarily catch the eye is the defensive midfielders, the ones who sit there and do the graft, the water-carriers.

“All I’m saying is that Tyler Adams has put in one of the best performances from a midfielder I’ve seen this season, against Chelsea. He was absolutely superb.”

Tyler Adams unbelievable

Some Leeds fans had their concerns about Adams before his arrival. He had gone off the boil at RB Leipzig. And obviously, he was someone looked at a potential replacement in case Phillips left.

The two are the not same players. But Leeds do appear to have improved in midfield since last season. And Adams is a key part of that progress.
