Pochettino gloomy despite Spurs’ best Premier League start

Merson added: "It just may suit Manchester City that little better as they have a bit more pace in their team and will not be fully reliant on pass, pass, pass". I'm pretty sure the Premier League don't like it, Tottenham too.

Only Daniel [Levy] can say 'the club is going to move, but you gaffer no'.

No wonder Pochettino sounds battle tired and perhaps a little envious of the likes of Guardiola, Liverpool's Juergen Klopp, Chelsea's Mauricio Sarri and Arsenal's Unai Emery. Though disappointment came in a Champions League quarter-final defeat to Liverpool and FA Cup fifth-round exit at the hands of League One side Wigan Athletic.

Guardiola does not feel this is a fair reflection on their performances, though, and insists he is a huge admirer of Pochettino's side, having courted controversy by labelling them "the Harry Kane team" last season. "The circumstances, because many things happen; I am disappointed we are still waiting for the new stadium when the expectation was to be there at the beginning of the season".

"I'm not sure City are quite as good as previous year and think they are probably a bit nervous", he said. "What I think is Mr Levy is not an easy guy to negotiate with".

Spurs have made their best ever start to a Premier League season after collecting 21 points from their opening nine games of the campaign.

"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.

"Many things happened in the summer, there are many things that make myself not in my best mood or humour".

"I think they're further away from the Premier League title then they have been over the last 2/3 seasons because ultimately I think the team is weakened", he told Nathan.

Given the tightness in points at the top of the table, Guardiola also sees this as a game City can ill afford to lose.

"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.

Pep Guardiola has been critical of his Manchester City players stating they need to remain professional should they be dropped. The Citizens could become the first non-London side to win five consecutive Premier League games in the capital.

The 46-year-old Argentine believes Spurs are "not showing that level to be a real contender" even though they would leapfrog the defending champions if they beat them at Wembley.

"The circumstance that happened in the last years, I think the club is not focused completely in winning titles or winning games", he said. Spurs originally planned to play Monday night's match at their new home, but delays saw them revert back to their temporary Wembley ground.
