Marcelo Bielsa had praise for Tyler Roberts after the young Wales striker scored a brace against Preston last night.
Bielsa on Roberts: "He started pre-season work later than others, he has put in much effort and he's been playing as a right winger because I asked him to but I heard that he liked to play as a no 9. The circumstances offered him a space."— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) September 18, 2018
Roberts has spent almost his entire career as a striker, and while the roles under Bielsa have been quite fluid at times, it’s obvious that Roberts does feel more comfortable as a striker than as a winger.
He created a few chances against Millwall, but was unlucky to not score. Against Preston, he took his chances well and scored a pair of great goals to heap misery on the Lancashire club.
If he’s our third choice striker, the rest of the league is doomed.
