Video: Sky pundits discuss England number one spot after latest Arsenal performance

Micah Richards, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Jamie Carragher discussed the England number one jersey, with the group insistent that Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale was the better goalkeeper.

Jordan Pickford has been a loyal servant in goal under Gareth Southgate, but his form for Everton at present is questionable, while Ramsdale continues to thrive under pressure.

The former Sheffield United goalkeeper joined last summer as understudy to Bernd Leno, only to quickly prove his worth in the first-team and establish himself as the club’s number one, and you would have to believe that the England boss will have to follow suit.

While there is still over half a year until the World Cup, you would imagine that Pickford now has an uphill battle to hold onto his role as his country’s first choice, although Micah Richards believes he could have favour after proving himself in the role previously.

Does anyone believe Southgate could be stubborn and continue with Pickford despite Ramdsale’s clear superiority?

  1. Pickford is yet to dissapoint southgate so i think pickford will still remain no 1 and can only be replaced if out injured. ramsdale can seize the opportunity to impress the coach and be the undisputed no 1 from then on.

    1. Yes. I totally agree with Jimmy. You always feel there’s a mistake in Pickford. Like he mentioned, sorry I m not British as he watches the game without bias of some sort..

  2. Safegate will play Pickford unless Everton are relegated ! He hasnt let him down so he wont risk it.
