Manchester United may also be tempted to test Pochettino's loyalties should they dispense with Jose Mourinho in the coming months, with one of the most sought after tacticians in the world game edging closer to reaching the inevitable crossroads in his career.

So can you name the 38 players who've scored at least 10 goals for Tottenham in the Premier League?

Guardiola said. "These are important".

"We saw it at West Ham last week - we saw it at Cardiff a couple of weeks ago and they've paid for that inability to do that in Europe, which looks like a Champions League exit now".

Pochettino's side have dropped points in a 2-1 loss to Liverpool FC at Wembley at the start of September, while Spurs succumbed to a 3-1 defeat by Watford at Vicarage Road. We are more comfortable at the Etihad than if we should play in another stadium. "I'm pretty sure that Tottenham have a good green keeper", noted golf enthusiast Guardiola told a pre-match news conference.

The Manchester City manager, whose side face Spurs on Monday night at Wembley, made the remark after his team won 1-0 win against Chelsea in September a year ago before Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino branded the comments "disrepectful".

Tottenham Hotspur and Man City is arguably the pick of the weekend's ties and Breen highlighted a few issues for the North London side - despite having their best ever start to a Premier League 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). "I think in football people have short memories". "I had better feelings in previous seasons".

"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.

"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".

Pep Guardiola has admitted he was wrong to refer to Tottenham as "the Harry Kane team".

"Today, we spend a lot of energy on many things". Going by that metric, Benjamin Mendy is the most risky player City have, with the left-back (who actually plays as more of a left winger) having assisted five goals this season.

"It was not the plan to be at Wembley, different things can happen like the National Football League games and you cannot change the date and we need to accept that as reality and not complain".
