Tyler Roberts fit for Barnsley game
Marcelo Bielsa has almost got a full squad to pick from for the Championship game against Barnsley on Sunday.
In his pre-match press conference, he revealed that Tyler Roberts was available for the game after playing in the Under-23s on Monday.
The attacker hasn’t played since the explosive 1-1 draw against Aston Villa at the end of last season.
We don’t think he’ll go straight back into the starting line-up, that’s not Bielsa’s way, but he could be on the bench and it would give us another attacking option on Sunday.

There was more good news from Bielsa too, with the news that right-back Luke Ayling is “healthy” and will play for the Under-23s next week.
That could see him make a first-team return as early as the game against Derby on September 21.
Bielsa didn’t reveal his starting line-up for the game and that’s left fans wondering whether Eddie Nketiah and Helder Costa will get their first league starts.
