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 predicted a 2-2 draw between Leeds and Chelsea in the Premier League clash on Saturday evening.
He thinks it will be a tough ask for Leeds but has said they can cause any teams problems.
He also said that Marcelo Bielsa would send his men out to attack at Stamford Bridge and that it would make for a very entertaining game for all football fans.
Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News Robinson said, “I think it’s a free hit for Leeds, I really do.
“They’re making a lot of friends in the Premier League, the way they’re playing. They’re going to cause a lot of people problems.
“Yes, they’re going to lose games as they’re so open but they’re going to win games too.
“You saw in the Everton game they completely dominated it. The Everton game wasn’t a 1-0 game, it should have been a lot more.
“Going into the Chelsea game they should be going in with excitement and anticipation. No one is expecting them to go in and win it.
“They will cause them problems, though, and I think that’s how Bielsa is going to approach it. He’s not going to worry about Leeds’ weakness. It’s a very exciting game for Leeds and for other fans to watch.
“It will be a tough one. Leeds will create chances. I’m going to go for a 2-2 draw.”
We would take a 2-2 draw, which would be a great result for Leeds, but we’d love to come away with all three points.
Bielsa has to decide whether to start club-record signing Rodrigo after he’s been on the bench for the past two games.
Lampard has to decide whether to start Olivier Giroud after he scored four goals in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
They’re problems that both managers will be happy to have.
