Paul Robinson slammed Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford for his inconsistent form but did admit the shot-stopper is still capable of excellence.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former England No.1 explained that he thought Pickford causes his own problems by getting involved in situations he shouldn’t.

The 25-year-old shot-stopper has played 13 times across all competitions for Marco Silva’s side this season, conceding 18 goals and keeping five clean sheets in the process.

Robinson pointed out that Pickford ends up making mistakes through poor choices after opting to go look for something to do in order to make up for a bad performance.

“He’s been fairly inconsistent as of late but he’s always capable of excellent stops which is very very important,” Robinson told Football Insider.

“As a goalkeeper, if you do something, maybe not right or you have a bad performance, you don’t go to chasing a game to look for things to do.

“I think sometimes in Jordan Pickford’s decision-making that’s what he does, he goes looking for things to do and makes wrong decisions when he shouldn’t be getting himself involved.”

In his 2018/19 campaign, Pickford conceded 50 goals in the 40 appearances he made across all competitions for the Toffees, however, he did also manage to keep 14 clean sheets.

The 25-year-old has been at Goodison Park since the Toffees opted to agree on a deal worth £30million with Sunderland for his services in July 2017.

Pickford is contracted to stay with Everton until June 2024 after signing a contract extension in September 2018.
