Manchester City set the pitch on fire against Swansea City as they won the midweek fixture with a scoreline of 4-0. But next up Pep Guardiola’s side have to take on Tottenham Hotspur at home and this match will be anything but a walk in the park.
City are by far the best team in England right now and their nearest rivals on the league table are 11 points adrift of them. But Guardiola knows very well that Pochettino is a master tactician and he will set up his team in a way that can easily hurt Manchester City.
Spurs are unbeaten in the last 3 Premier League meetings between the two club and the Lilywhites have managed to win two out of the three games. The last Premier League meeting between the two clubs took place in January 2017 and the match ended with a 2-2 draw.
