Alli in contention for Spurs return against City

Pep Guardiola has revealed he rushed to Manchester Arena after hearing his wife and daughters were caught up in last year's terror attack

The trip to White Hart Lane, however, was a reality check for the Catalan as Spurs executed a flawless pressing game to inflict City's first defeat of the season and Guardiola's first defeat in English football. "There's no Kyle Walker anymore, the fact that Dembele is not the player he was".

It would not only restore the mojo back into Pochettino's team but also give them the literal belief that they can actually beat any team in the league.

He was asked what Tottenham need to do to receive acclaim from the media like Liverpool, even though the sides are separated by only two points in the table. I learn when I watch them. I know I've always been amusing with you and I have a good relationship with you but my feeling is not the best.

City are keen to ensure their first team stars are felt valued and the club aim to discuss a new deal with Silva's representatives towards the end of the year.

"Southampton is next at home - the same points than against Tottenham - but when you win (the other title rival) doesn't win".

"I like that, after what happened in Manchester at the arena, now it is a song for the people".

As well as Spurs have done in the league this season, Pochettino accepts they are unlikely to be able to challenge the likes of City until they are in their new stadium.

"Many things happened that make myself not in my best mood", said Pochettino. It's not a case now of just admiring glances - the job is his if he wants it. Frustrations were evident over the summer after the Argentine failed to land a single player in the transfer window but with limited funding and a new stadium on the way, there's comparisons to Arsene Wenger and Arsenal when they swapped Highbury for Emirates.

It is in a bit of a state ahead of the game on Monday night, which will see two of England's best passing teams attempting to stick to their natural game and keep the ball on a far from flawless pitch. Although no problems yet, the Spaniard's comments suggest that changes could be made ahead of their Premier League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night while those who don't make the starting XI must remain focussed.

But Guardiola is keen to ensure the Premier League champions have no excuses and insisted the worn-down Wembley is not a concern. "Three or four days ago when we played against Donetsk it was unfair for many players who deserved to play".

Tottenham's new stadium in London won't be ready until next year.
