Sergio Reguilon Names Two Premier League Stars As His Toughest Opponents

Sergio Reguilon has named Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez as his two toughest opponents, as he reflects on just over a year in English football.

The 24-year-old arrived at Tottenham Hotspur in a £24million deal from Real Madrid in September and made 49 appearances for the club at the time of writing.

He singled out the England international full-back and the former Leicester City man, Mahrez as the players who caused him the most problems.

Reguilon was taking part in a video feature with ProDirect Soccer, where the Spaniard was guessing players based on their FIFA 22 card ratings. It was in this interview where he singled out the Manchester City duo.

"Against City but not one player. Walker and Mahrez...too difficult," he admitted in quotes published by football.london.

Walker has featured 13 times across all competitions so far for Man City, and scored in a 5-1 thrashing of Club Brugge.

The 31-year-old started 9 of City's 11 Premier League games and most recently played the full 90 minutes in their 2-0 win over Manchester United last time out.

Mahrez has enjoyed a superb season for Pep Guardiola's side, scoring 8 goals in his 15 appearances across all competitions, most recently the net in that same 5-1 win over Brugge.

His form is especially impressive in this season's Champions League, finding the net 4 times in 4 outings in Europe's premier cup competition.

Thankfully for Reguilon, he will not be facing either Walker or Mahrez this weekend, with Antonio Conte's side in line to host Leeds United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.

Spurs are currently winless in their last three Premier League games since recording a 3-2 victory away at Newcastle United on 17th October.

Conte's first league match in charge ended in a goalless draw away at Everton on 7th November.
