When asked by Football Insider if Haaland was the best striker in the world on current form, Robinson said: “He is strong and he is physical.
“There is an argument to say that he is the best player in the world at the moment. Not many people could argue against that when you look at the stats.
“Not many players have started better than him. [Robert] Lewandowski and [Kylian] Mbappe have also had good starts but on current form I’d lean towards Haaland. He has been unbelievable.
“There was question marks over how City would play with him leading the line. He has been a revelation. His physical attributes are a nightmare for defenders.”
