Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur; key battles to watch

Manchester City Players Celebrate Goal

Manchester City would be up against London side Tottenham Hotspur as Premier League returns this weekend.

The likes of Arsenal and Wolves have slugged it out in the early kick-off match with the Gunners winning 2-1 at the Emirates.

But the Citizens know that a win against Tottenham Hotspur would be key for them going into the festive period.

With the above state, Allnews. ng evaluates the key battles to watch, ahead of this game.

Rodri vs. Giovani Lo Celso

The two midfield players would go against each other as demand would have it in the game. And whoever lives the dream with a top-quality performance can influence the real outcome of the game.

Celso is in top form having scored a cracker of a goal against London side Aston Villa last weekend.

But Rodri brings Pep Guardiola’s perspective of a defensive midfielder into play as it could be a hard ball game between him (Rodri) and Argentine playmaker Giovani lo Celso in the course of this game.

Mateo Kovacic vs. Emile Hojberg

The Croatian international would be expected to man the midfield for Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

But could the technical awareness of Emile Hojberg be good enough to curb his sterling attacking quality in a game of this magnitude?

The end would justify the means as we all hope for a tight game at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Erling Haaland vs. Emerson Royal

The Norwegian International is expected to face Emerson Royal in the central areas as far as this match is concerned.

However, Haaland is supposed to get the better of the Brazilian defender (Emerson Royal) in this match.

Royal has a point to prove that he's a man of the big stage when he gets to put up a credible performance against one of the best strikers in Europe Erling Braut Haaland of Manchester City.
