Paul Robinson: Predicted Leeds XI v Tottenham
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 thinks that Gjanni Alioksi will be dropped on Saturday after a poor performance against Brighton last week.
He’s expecting to see Stuart Dallas put back to left-back with Mateusz Klich in midfield.
Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips are set for late fitness tests, and Robinson is hoping that Phillips will make it.
If not, Robin Koch is likely to continue to deputise for him.
Robinson also believes that Liam Cooper will come straight back into the side, with Pascal Struijk dropping out.
“Klich has been in and out of the side recently but he didn’t play any worse than anyone else against Brighton,” said Robinson.
“I don’t think Alioski will play and Stuart Dallas will come in at left-back.
“Then it just depends on whether Kalvin Phillips is fit – I hope he is.
“If Raphinha misses out as I suspect he will, then I think Rodrigo will come in for him.”
Pushed for a prediction, Robinson has gone for a swashbuckling 3-3 draw, saying that both clubs are close to his heart.
