Ramadan Sobhi: Tottenham game a real test for us
Stoke City winger Ramadan Sobhi has stated that their encounter against Tottenham in the 32nd round of the English Premier League a ‘real test’ for both teams.
Stoke are in the 19th place with 27 points, failing to grab any win in their last five league games. The Potters are expected to aim for nothing less than the three points in the final six games in order to strengthen their hopes of avoiding relegation.
“We made a really good performance against Arsenal. Unfortunately mistakes happen, the penalty was given and we did feel a sense of injustice, but we will be concentrating on putting on all our efforts, God willing, to produce another good performance,” Sobhi told Stoke’s official website.
“Tottenham are a very good team, so it will be a real test for us but it will be a good game. We will be doing our best as I’m sure they will because it’s a big game for both teams, but for us it’s very big and we need the three points to help stay in the Premier League.”
Sobhi also was asked if he fears facing his fellow Egypt teammate Mohamed Salah’s rival for the Premier League golden boot, Harry Kane. The 21-year-old winger acknowledged Kane’s class but stressed that Stoke will play as a unit.
“We’re not worried at all. Yes, he is one of the best strikers in the world but as a team and as a unit, we will be concentrating very hard to ensure we have a good performance. It will be a hard game that we need to be focused on and pay the manager and supporters by getting a result.”
“There will be a balance on how to manage and play a game. With his [Paul Lambert’s] help and the tactics that he’s put in place then we should hopefully. I can’t say exactly how many points but I can say that God willing we will work hard to put in some good performances and get as many points as we need to stay in the Premier Legaue.”
“Swansea game is the last of the season, we have five games prior to that and we have to concentrate on every game to ensure we get as many points as possible, so I can’t say we
