Leeds were also without Leif Davis, who dropped out of the squad following the midweek win over West Brom, and injured pair Liam Cooper and Diego Llorente.

Bielsa was similarly tight lipped on his centre-half pair, adding only: "They are both recovering."

Roberts has played eight times - making just two starts - this season in the Premier League but has struggled to make an impact.

Last season he made 23 appearances in an injury-hit campaign, scoring four goals.
