So it actually happened.

Tyler Roberts finally played in a match for Leeds.

Roberts had transferred to Leeds from West Bromwich Albion during last season’s January transfer window, but after picking up an injury in his very first training session with Leeds, he failed to make an appearance for the club.

The 19-year old had a decent scoring record in League 1 for Walsall, scoring five goals and getting three assists in 17 league games in the 2017-18 season, meaning that he was involved in a goal every other game. Let’s hope he can bring some of that scoring rate to Leeds this season, as he’ll be needed.
