Rodri considers Tottenham Hotspur as contenders for the Premier League title
Rodri, who plays for Manchester City, believes Tottenham Hotspur can challenge for the Premier League title this season. The midfielder says Tottenham Hotspur have a great squad and a great manager.
Rodri was full of praise for Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte, whose career he said ‘speaks for itself’.
“[Tottenham] have put together a great squad and they have a manager who has very clear ideas and who knows how to convey them perfectly,” Rodri told Gazzetta dello Sport. “They know what they have to do and they do it with great precision. I see Spurs as candidates for the title. Conte’s career speaks for itself.”
Meanwhile, both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have earned 17 points in the Premier League so far this season. Man City sit second, courtesy of superior goal difference, while Tottenham occupy the third position.
Both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have played seven games in the English top-flight this season. Man City and Tottenham have both won five of those fixtures. The two teams were also held to draws in two of their games.
Meanwhile, Arsenal sit top of the Premier League points table. The Gunners have 18 points from their first seven games. They have registered victories in six of those matches, while suffering defeat in the other.
Man City will resume their Premier League campaign after the international break by facing fierce rivals Manchester United. City host Man Utd at Etihad Stadium in their next game. Man Utd come into the fixture on the back of four consecutive wins in the Premier League after defeats in their opening two matches.
