Guardiola admits he was wrong to make Spurs comment

Other than Manchester United, who have made a hard start, only Spurs have been beaten by a team outside last season's top six while leaders Liverpool have only dropped to City and Chelsea.

"This is the worst I've felt, yet it's the best start ever for us in the Premier League".

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

After rejecting the prospect of taking over at Real Madrid last summer, the Bernabeu hot-seat is about to become vacant once again and while former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is the man taking the Bernabeu hot-seat this time, Pochettino will inevitably be offered his dream job in Madrid once again sooner rather than later and next time, he may well take the bait.

Despite an underwhelming Champions League campaign to date, Spurs have been similarly impressive domestically this term and victory at England's national stadium would see them leapfrog City in the standings.

Only two points separates Spurs and Manchester City.

"I'm not sure City are quite as good as past year and think they are probably a bit nervous", he said.

It's no wonder Sports Betting Dime has Guardiola's team as the overwhelming favourites to win at Wembley and to regain their Premier League crown this season.

"It's odd because my feeling is the worst feeling I've had in the four a half years that I've been here", he said. "Normally injuries happen when they are not 100 per cent focused". It is important to note that Guardiola's first real taste of English football was given to him by Pochettino himself at White Hart Lane with the very same high press.

"I don't know what's happened in the past but it's true that the strong teams are making a lot of points, they are not dropping points easily".

"When you take care properly and focus, knowing that the pitch may not be in the best question, you have to be ready", said the Catalan.

Man City's Sergio Aguero scored 10 goals in his first seven Premier League games against Spurs - since then, he's failed to find the net in five appearances against them.

Unfortunately, directly in front of Tottenham are City, who are arguably the best team in the country and have been for the past year.

With a blockbuster clash between the two title contenders just around the corner, we look at their similarities and the implications of the result.

Pep Guardiola has been critical of his Manchester City players stating they need to remain professional should they be dropped.

"I think the most important thing ahead of the game is how we feel, how we prepare for the game".

"The circumstance that happened in the last years, I think the club is not focused completely in winning titles or winning games", he said.
