The Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta has said that he will not be changing his style of play for the visit of Tottenham. The Argentine defender will be up against the Tottenham winger Gareth Bale, who was at his imperious best in the last time he visited Manchester.

Gareth Bale absolutely destroyed Manchester United in the 3-2 win for Tottenham a few weeks ago. Even though he has not been at the same level since then, Pablo Zabaleta still reckons that Gareth Bale will be one of the players to watch out for in the match.

Yet, he will not be changing his style of play because he has never done it for any other player. Pablo Zabaleta has praised the Gareth Bale by saying that he has everything in his locker. He can not only dribble past players but also score wonderful goals as well. The Argentine defender has come up against the likes of Juan Mata, Ryan Giggs, and Theo Walcott during his time at Manchester City, and he is prepared to face the challenge from the Welsh winger as well. Tottenham come into the match looking to end the unbeaten home record of Manchester City, which has stood for a few years.

“It is a great motivation when you are against a good player. He is one of the best wingers in the world. He has great pace. He is very fast and he has a great cross. His technique is very good. He has got a very good left foot. He scores a lot of goals, so he is a fantastic player. I just do everything the same, whether it’s Gareth Bale or another winger,” said Zabaleta ahead of the match this weekend. Manchester City can move into the second place with a victory over Tottenham.
