Pochettino in low mood despite Spurs' strong domestic start

Pochettino in low mood despite Spurs' strong domestic start

"But maybe when we arrive to the new stadium in the future, we will be in the same project, or we are going to act the same as other teams are acting like Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal". I'm pretty sure the Premier League don't like it, Tottenham too.

He said: "When you play against the contenders it's nearly six points, isn't it?"

Guardiola said. "These are important".

"My admiration for Marcelo Bielsa is huge because he makes the players much, much better", said Guardiola early a year ago as Pochettino sang a similar tune saying, "Of course he's a great coach".

Also important to note is how an attacking midfielder drops in to fill the space vacated by the deeper man, giving them a spare man in midfield as well, Eriksen doing this to great effect in the Spurs side - David Silva in City. The very fact that they're building this brilliant new stadium at a time when they desperately needed to strengthen what was a brilliant team over the last couple of seasons to take them within grasp of that Premier League title - they haven't been able to do that - and I think that will be the main worry. "I think Tottenham feel more comfortable at home", he added.

This match could turn on a single decision and considering Man City have scored 20 goals from open play to Spurs' six, making use of set pieces will be crucial to the home side.

Pochettino's Tottenham host Guardiola's Manchester City at Wembley on Monday, with the Premier League champions nine games into an unbeaten start to their title defence.

Klopp updates on fitness of Mane, Keita and Henderson
Liverpool have claimed three points from their opening two group games and now sit one point adrift of leaders Napoli. Many observers have suggested that Salah, Mane and Firmino are not hitting anywhere near heights they did last season.

Tottenham's Erik Lamela has been directly involved in four goals in five Premier League games this season (three goals, one assist), the same total he registered in 25 games last term (two goals, two assists).

Mauricio Pochettino will have learned from previous meetings between the two but the big problem is that on current form, City are simply a better team.

I don't know, many things happened in the summer, many things that make myself not in my best mood or best humour. "That we had 100 points is because we were focused on all the games". "What I think is Mr Levy is not an easy guy to negotiate with".

The 46-year-old Argentine believes Spurs are "not showing that level to be a real contender" even though they would leapfrog the defending champions if they beat them at Wembley.

Announced as the incoming Manchester City manager midway through the 2015/16 season, Guardiola officially took charge in July 2016. Kevin De Bruyne is back for City and is one of the few players who could pull off that quarter-back role with his range.

"No, it wasn't the plan for us to be playing this game at Wembley but that's the reality now".
