Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte hopes Rodrigo Bentancur will be back for Manchester City clash

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte, while speaking to Sky Sports Premier League (h/t HITC) has claimed that midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur could be available for the next league fixture against Manchester City.

Bentancur missed the 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in the North London Derby and fair to say, his absence was notoriously visible in a midfield which was completely dominated by our opposition.

“I hope for the next game to recover Rodrigo Bentancur.”

Bentancur alongside Pierre-Emile Hojberg is our best pair in the centre of the back with Yves Bissouma and also Pape Matar Sarr truly failing to convince many of a starting berth.

One of the major issues behind the defeat to Arsenal was how their midfield three of Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey and Martin Odegaard completely outran our pivot pairing.

The Uruguayan, signed from Juventus on an initial loan deal which was made permanent, has been one of the most shrewd signings of the Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici era.

The 25-year-old looks completely in place with the team and is the main needle that pulls the string between the defence and to attack.

His return to the team could not have arrived at a better time with a huge game coming on the weekend against Manchester City.

If we play anywhere close to how we played against Arsenal, it is going to be another long night and even though City are going through a slump themselves, they are still one of the best around.

Rather due to the fact that they have lost two consecutive games, Pep Guardiola would be entering the game with a fierce mentality to get the maximum points.

Hence, we have to be at our absolute best in order to have any chance of getting a result. At the same time, we cannot afford to lose any more points and have a bigger gap to the top four.
