Tottenham vs Manchester City: Pochettino reflects on early successes against Guardiola

Pep Guardiola has revealed he rushed to Manchester Arena after hearing his wife and daughters were caught up in last year's terror attack Pep Guardiola has revealed he rushed to Manchester Arena after hearing his wife and daughters were caught up in last year's terror attack

But Guardiola knows much sterner tests lie in wait for City, starting against a Tottenham side who have made their best start to a Premier League season.

Tottenham beat City at home in Guardiola's first season in charge but went down 3-1 last season as City steamed to the title with a record 100 points. "There's no Kyle Walker anymore, the fact that Dembele is not the player he was".

What would get Spurs credit is a strong showing against league champions Man City on Monday, but suffer a third league defeat and more negativity will circle the club. Whereas, all the other teams have.

"I know I always have a good relationship with the media but my feeling is not the best feeling, I had a better feeling in previous seasons".

"The season so far, it's odd because my feeling is the worst I've had in the five years that I've been here", he added. When you win, he doesn't win.

"I like that, after what happened in Manchester at the arena, now it is a song for the people".

Spurs play Manchester City in the Premier League tonight, and just two days later face off against West Ham United in the League Cup.

Pochettino, who has in the past been linked with the Real Madrid job even though he is yet to win silverware, said his depressed mood dated back to events in the summer.

After hosting three National Football League games in a fortnight, the Wembley turf has been ravaged ahead of Tottenham's huge clash with Manchester City. Disappointed because we are still waiting for the new stadium when the expectation was to be there from the beginning.

However, the winger is demanding wages in excess of £240,000-a-week to become one of City's best paid players, while the club were aiming for closer to £180,000-a-week.

In any case, he feels Spurs have proved him wrong completely by making a fine start to the season while Kane's form, despite yielding five Premier League goals, has been sporadic.

"You see the line-up - the first 11, 12, 13 players from Tottenham for the last five or six years, Tottenham are always up there", Guardiola added. Spurs paid out compensation to their own supporters for the disruption, but drew the line at paying back City's supporters whose plans were left in tatters.

"It's a very powerful thing to keep your quad together but at the same time you need to understand that power is only important if you use it to push harder, work harder and be better".
