Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester City: Three key battles ahead of FA Cup tie

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester City: Three key battles ahe

Tottenham vs Norwich

Tottenham Hotspur would welcome Manchester City in the English football scene. Both Premier League giants would be aiming to advance to the next stage with one eye on the FA Cup silverware.

But they have to get the job done if they are to taste glory in this competition. With quality players available to both teams, it will be interesting to see which side prevail in this contest.

On this note, Allnews.ng evaluates the three key battles that could define this FA Cup show down.

Timo Werner vs. Kyle Walker

The German star Timo Werner would be out to get the better of his counterpart as hostility ensues between both players.

Walker must be cautions via his overlapping runs to avoid giving space for Werner to exploit in the defence line.

Whereas both players could be a match for each other in terms of experience. Though we expect Kyle Walker to have an edge over the newly signed Timo Werner in this FA Cup encounter.

Rodrigo Bentancur vs. Mateo Kovacic

The talented Uruguayan international Bentancur would be a strategic onslaught for Mateo Kovacic in the middle of the park.

But could Kovacic overcome the South American with his touch of creativity when both players do battle on the field of play.

It promise to be a highly contested duel as Rodrigo would give his all to set the ball rolling for his Tottenham side in this match.

Emile-Pierre Hojberg vs. Kevin De Bruyne

The Danish star Hojbjerg would square up with the inform but recently returned midfielder Kevin De Bruyne in the midfield region.

Whoever wins this battle would largely influence the course of the match. Though both sides have got the knack to score vital goals thus outwitting their opponent in midfield.

But we expect De Bruyne to come out on top here by virtue of his immense quality as an attacking midfield player.
