Manchester City’s Rodri backs Tottenham Hotspur to challenge for league title

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Evening Standard), Manchester City midfielder Rodri has backed Tottenham Hotspur to challenge for the Premier League title. The Spain international joined the Cityzens from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2019.

Since then, he has won two Premier League trophies under manager Pep Guardiola. Spurs have started this season well, and are level on points with Manchester City after seven games with 17.

They trail the Cityzens on goal difference and league-leaders Arsenal by one point. Rodri believes that Spurs can challenge for the title this campaign, and the former Atleti star also praised manager Antonio Conte in the process.

“They have put together a great squad and they have a manager who has very clear ideas and who knows how to convey them perfectly. 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.”

The last time Tottenham won the league title was in the 1960/61 season, when Liverpool were playing in the second division. It has truly been a very long wait for us to get our hands on the league title once again.

Spurs have proven that they have what it takes to go the distance, even if it has only been seven gameweeks. We now have a squad with depth following a summer transfer window where we added the likes of Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic, and Richarlison.

It is worth mentioning that Conte has won the league title with the last three clubs that he managed before Spurs. He did so with Juventus (thrice), Chelsea, and Inter Milan. Hopefully, the streak continues at N17.

Conte is a man who has won titles as a player and as a manager. He is not at Spurs to just compete in tournaments but to go and win them.

The games against City will surely be a big factor if it really comes down to these two teams for the title towards the end of the season. The Lilywhites’ clash against City at the Etihad on September 10 has been postponed for a later date, and they host the defending champions on 4 February 2023.
