Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose on facing Manchester City’s Jesus Navas

Tottenham Hotspur will host Manchester City at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose has told the club’s official website that he needs to be careful of Manchester City winger Jesus Navas.

Rose has recovered from a hamstring injury and is likely to feature in Sunday’s Premier League clash between the two sides at White Hart Lane.

The England international could face the pacy Navas, and he admits that he will need to be on top of his game.

“There won’t be too many times where I look at an opponent and worry what he’s going to do but that might be different against Navas because he’s been in good form of late,” Rose told Tottenham’s official website.

“I’ll still play my game, try to get forward and try to come up with an assist or hopefully a goal. At the same time, I’ll have to be careful with Navas because he’s very dangerous.”

Navas has not had the best of seasons, but he remains a very talented player who can step up when needed to.

The former Sevilla winger has yet to score in the Premier League this campaign, but he has created 77 chances in 32 league matches.

The 29-year-old has a pass accuracy of 85% and a shot accuracy of 50%, and he has won 14 headers, 37 dribbles and 24 tackles.

The duel between Rose and Navas on Sunday will be very interesting. Much will depend on who is better on the day, but given that the Tottenham full-back has already identified what he needs to do, one suspects that he will be prepared to deal with the danger posed by the Spaniard.
