Mauricio Pochettino fires warning shot at Man City after tunnel bust-up

Mauricio Pochettino fires warning shot at Man City after tunnel bust-up”

Manchester City soared above the fog swirling round the Etihad Stadium to demolish Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 and leave the rest of the Premier League peering into the distance in search of Pep Guardiola's record-breaking team on Saturday.

Spurs are, and have always been a club that likes to play football.

"You can not imagine how good he plays with the ball, but he runs like a player in the Conference (semi-professional) league". I am involved and will do my best when the manager asks me to play.

Pochettino had opted for a midfield diamond in a bid to deny City space in the middle of the pitch, but De Bruyne still found room to spring his team forwards with trademark piercing passes. They've yet to meet a team capable of containing their attacking talents, scoring a quite incredible 52 goals in their 17 games to date.

City: In first with 49 points and an 11-point lead in the table, a win will at least keep them there as we near the mid-point of the season.

He is now three wins short of his own record for Europe's five major leagues, which he set with Bayern Munich in 2013-14.

"I wish for that", Pochettino said.

"I don't want to be humble right now".

He said: "I had some conversations with people from the coaching staff". We work a lot and the players know that.

"Without good players and the club supporting your ideas, it's impossible to achieve this kind of thing". Kyle Walker replaces Danilo in defence, meanwhile, and Leroy Sane comes back in at the expense of Bernardo Silva. Spurs can't move higher than fourth, but a loss could see them end the weekend as low as seventh.

Sterling's double in the final 10 minutes took his tally for the season to 15 in all competitions before Christian Eriksen scored a late consolation for the visitors.

De Bruyne survived a shocking tackle from the disappointing Dele Alli - England manager Gareth Southgate will hope it is a closer battle when he confronts the Belgian at next summer's World Cup - to channel his anger into brilliance.

Harry Kane, too, was shown only a yellow card for an untidy foul on Sterling, but although Guardiola felt both tackles were "dangerous", he refused to criticise referee Craig Pawson.

City's attacking soccer is a thing to behold but there was nothing fancy about their 14th minute opener as Gundogan was left unmarked to head in from a corner - a goal Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino described as an early Christmas present.

"I am never going to complain if another team celebrates because sometimes it's good, when you lose, and you hear all that happens in another changing room".

"I think he is a star because he is 31 years old but he is enjoying to learn more and to score goals and that is so important for the team". The England worldwide, who also caught Gundogan in the first half, was shown only a yellow card. We can't assess individual performances. "We need to translate that feeling to the opposite changing room".

"We have a very good relationship". It was a comfortable victory for them.
