Leeds forward Tyler Roberts cannot wait to get stuck into the new season to prove he can be more valuable to boss Marcelo Bielsa.

The Yorkshire outfit finished ninth last term in their first Premier League campaign in 16 years, and they are 66/1 to claim a place in the top four this term. They start their campaign against Manchester United on 14th August.

I am looking forward to it beginning again

Roberts is hopeful that he can make a more telling contribution this term after scoring just one goal last year, in the 2-0 victory at Southampton on 18th May.

The 22-year-old signed for the Elland Road club in January 2018 from Walsall for £2.5m and he has scored eight times since his arrival.

Now the former West Brom trainee, who was part of Robert Page's Wales squad that reached the last-16 at Euro 2020 before losing 4-0 to Denmark, wants to make more of a contribution.

He said: "I took a lot of confidence from last year. To get a full season in the Premier League and battle it out at the level I want to play at, it was a great starting point.

"But I talked about last year not being happy with my goals and assists. That's a big goal for me this season andI feel like I've found the ways to improve that part of my game and push on in that way."

He added: "I am looking forward to it beginning again. When you're a footballer you enjoy playing games so you want to get straight back into it, so it's working out well."
