Premier League Preview and Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

01 October, 2016, 00:35 | Author: Nora May

He is now tied with Carlo Ancelotti, who won his first six games with Chelsea in 2009.

Guardiola is as admirer of Pochettino and his Tottenham side, having also familiar come up against the Argentinian when he coached Espanyol and the Catalan managed Barcelona.

"Of course, he is one of the best managers in the world who has showed his quality at Barcelona and Bayern Munich before coming to Manchester City and I think it is exciting to play his team".

"I played against Pochettino as a player and then as a coach". However, they certainly haven't hit the form of past year yet and still have a lot of headroom to improve.

Not including this season, Spurs have an impressive winning record at White Hart Lane: 21 wins, eight draws and nine losses over the last two years. The way they play, I like a lot.

Guardiola added: "When he (Pochettino) arrived at Espanyol from his first game he was so aggressive and high-pressing and many more things, and the way Mauricio plays is quite similar". Just as significantly, they lost only once and that was at United on the opening day of last season.

"They've bought some really good young players".

The last time City played Spurs at White Hart Lane, they left with their tails between their legs after a 4-1 drubbing, but we wouldn't expect to see a goal margin like that again on Sunday.

Regarding the injured Kevin De Bruyne, Vincent Kompany and Fabian Delph, Guardiola said: "We have ten days [after Spurs] which will help us - we need a lot of them back".

Spurs have their own injury issues with Harry Kane ruled out and concerns over Mousa Dembele, Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Moussa Sissoko. That is not to say their form under Guardiola is false, just that it is how they perform in the big-six clashes and against top teams in the Champions League that will truly reveal how much they have moved forward under their new manager. "That is, I think, the basis". Spurs have made steadier progress in Pochettino's two seasons in charge, finishing fifth and third and qualifying for the Champions League for only the second time. If you have a go at them, you've got a heck of a chance against them.

Mauricio Pochettino will be eager for his side to take three points here and signal their intent for the season and he has previous experience of how to beat a Pep Guardiola side. "We will try to do our job", Guardiola said. That is the balance. "He is very young and we need to work a lot for him to arrive at his best level but it's true that, for the way that we want to use him now, he's a flawless forward to be on the bench and make an impact like he did against CSKA".
