We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United
Paul Robinson has said that he thinks 19-year-old winger Crysencio Summerville could make his squad debut for Leeds United tonight.
The former Feyenoord winger has been in sparkling for the Under-23s recently and scored a hat-trick in the 4-1 win against Burnley.
The Under-23s are 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League 2 Division 2 table after a dominating start to the season.
Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Robinson said, “I think he could get called up to the squad.
“A player like that is always going to be looked at by the manager, especially when there are players missing from the squad through injury.
“I don’t think he’ll go straight into the starting line-up but I do think he could be on the bench tonight and he could be given some game time in the near future.”
Raphinha and Patrick Bamford are doubts for the game, while Rodrigo has been ruled out and Robinson thinks that Mateusz Klich is a better replacement for him than Pablo Hernandez.
“It depends on Pablo’s fitness and how far through a game he can get. I like Hernandez, I think he’s an outstanding talent,” Robinson said.
“Klich came on at the weekend when Rodrigo was injured, whether that was to cope with the Leicester attack I don’t know.
“But Everton have a lot of energy in midfield and this might not be the ideal game for Hernandez to start after so much time out.”
Patrick Bamford and Raphinha are facing late fitness tests after the bruising 3-1 win against Leicester at the weekend.
Everton have their own injury problems with Jordan Pickford out. Robin Olsen will come in to replace him.
