Leeds United attacker Tyler Roberts may have played last Premier League game
Leeds United forward Tyler Roberts underwent surgery this week on a ruptured hamstring tendon.
He sustained the injury in last Saturday’s Premier League game at Leicester City, which the Whites lost 1-0.
The club has confirmed that he will spend the next three months on the sidelines which means that his season is done and dusted.
Roberts has always been a player who has divided opinions among the Leeds United fans.
Despite his lack of quality performances, Marcelo Bielsa used to keep giving him a chance.
However, once he parted ways with the club, it was interesting to see what his successor did.

Jesse Marsch did not use him as a starter but brought him off the bench in the dying stages of the game.
However, after three months of injury, will Roberts be the same player he was before the Leicester game?
Probably not. That could be why Marsch and co. decide that the time is right to part ways with him in the summer.
His deal expires in 2024 so there is plenty of time which means that if they decide to cash in on his services, they could demand a solid transfer fee.
There does not seem to be any interest in his services from Premier League sides, so a move overseas may be on the cards for the Welsh attacker.
He’s only 23, so clubs will not even think of signing him as a gamble and him being off the books would be a big boost for Leeds.
