England hooker Dylan Hartley believes that Argentina will look to "squeeze" their opponents in tomorrow's meeting at Twickenham.

Dylan Hartley has said that he expects Argentina to look to "squeeze the life out" of England in tomorrow's Autumn International.

The Northampton Saints captain has been recalled to the starting lineup, having come off the bench in last week's 20-13 win over Australia.

The hooker told Sky Sports News: "Argentina will get the ball to the number eight's feet and try to squeeze the life out of you and start marching you backwards resulting in a penalty.

"So it's something we're going to have to be full on and ready for. We're prepared well, David Wilson has been playing so well for Bath, he's in form and due a chance. I'm fully confident in our practice.

"It's a huge element to the game, if that goes right for us, it can lead into all areas. The physicality at the break down, the lineout, if the scrum goes well and the mind-sets right there it can flow into the rest of the game."

The Test takes place at Twickenham tomorrow afternoon.
