ZIMBABWE International Marvelous Nakamba will this weekend face some of the world’s deadly attacking midfielders, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva.
Nakamba’s Aston Villa are away to Manchester City.
The defensive midfielder has been outstanding for Aston Villa in their recent matches, providing cover for the defenders. But in Spanish magician Silva and Belgian international De Bruyne, in particular, the Warriors
midfielder will be tested to the limit.
“Kevin is a fantastic player and we are lucky to have him,” Silva was quoted on the Manchester City website. “He’ll be one of the players to make a big step forward in the future because he’s one of the most experienced in a young squad.”
De Bruyne has directly contributed to 118 goals in 185 games, since his arrival at Etihad four years ago.
The arrival of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City has seen Silva attacking through the centre, a situation that could see Nakamba called to action.
It was however Foden who started ahead of Silva in the UEFA Champions league. De Bruyne on the other hand is difficult to contain as he can come from deep to create chances and Nakamba will be forced to stop his final passes or long-range efforts.
