Pochettino proves Spurs not just the 'Kane team', admits Guardiola

Caley North London looks like the site of the Premier League’s battle for fourth

However, both sides will be faced with the challenge of playing on a pitch that took a battering during the National Football League match between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Since losing to Lyon in the Champions League in September, Pep Guardiola's side have gone on a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions.

The Wembley pitch was bad enough 10 days after Anthony Joshua beat Alexander Povetkin in their heavyweight fight inside a ring plonked in the middle, when Tottenham hosted Barcelona in the Champions League earlier this month.

The Cyprus under 21 global has been in incredible form from the middle of the park for the club's under 23s team, scoring three goals and providing a further three assists in 11 games.

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

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has dealt admirably with the various curve balls launched his way since the end of last season - so well in fact that his side have enjoyed their best start to a Premier League campaign.

"I don't believe that in football you can find something that is impossible to do, but it will be hard of course because we need to play well and have a bit of luck to win the game".

"I think, like a team, we still didn't win nothing", he said. "I think Tottenham feel more comfortable at home", he added.

Tottenham's new stadium in London won't be ready until next year. "I met him at Watford when we played there last season and it was a huge pleasure", Guardiola said.

"We've started with three games away against them".

Pochettino's most recent encounters with Guardiola do not make for such good reading, with City running out 4-1 and 3-1 winners last season on their way to a dominant title triumph.

The switching of this match to a Monday evening means that while a busy week lies ahead for both teams, they have each had extra time to recover from Champions League travels. We control part of the game, we create more chances, concede few.

"Maybe when we arrive to the new stadium in the future we will be in the same project, or we are going to act the same as other teams, like Liverpool, City, United, Chelsea and Arsenal. They are a young team with a good 'keeper and a good striker so they have everything to be there", he added. We have to perform better than them - and, of course, have a little bit of luck in a decisive moment.
