The newly-crowned Premier League Player of the Month Erling Haaland has been hailed as a “goal-scoring monster” by ex-England keeper Paul Robinson.
Robinson, who played for Leeds and Spurs, told The Betfred Football Show that the Norwegian is “pretty much unstoppable”.
The former stopper believes Manchester City will win 4-1 at Wolves on Saturday afternoon – a result that will put them top of the table for at least 24 hours.
Following the cancellation of fixtures last weekend and some this weekend following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Robinson believes there will be a huge fixture pile-up this season that will result in games being played on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Tonight, he reckons Aston Villa’s clash with Southampton is a must-win for manager Steven Gerrard. He predicts a 2-1 win for the Villains.
Robinson predicts the same scoreline for Fulham at Nottingham Forest, suggesting Mitrovic will be on target like he was last season in the Championship when the Cottagers beat Forest 4-0.
The 42-year-old said that lowly Leicester look drained of confidence, and manager Brendan Rodgers “doesn’t seem like himself.”
Consequently, he predicts a home win for Spurs against the Foxes – while he reckons it’ll be a 1-1 draw in the London derby on Sunday between Brentford and Arsenal.
Robinson called Brentford an ideal model for how to stay in the Premier League, while Arsenal have given their manager Mikel Arteta “the greatest gift you can give a manager, which is time”
He hailed fellow keeper Nick Pope’s form this season and thinks the Magpies will be able to turn draws into wins and be too strong for Bournemouth, triumphing 3-1.
Finally, he sees signs of “shoots of recovery” at Everton, while West Ham have started slowly, so reckons the game at Goodison will end up with the home side winning 2-1.
