Spurs have proved me wrong, says Pep Guardiola

"I don't know why, it's so hard to explain - [it's] because of the circumstances, because many things happen, because we're disappointed that we're still waiting for the new stadium when the expectation was to be there from the beginning of the season".

Dele Alli could be involved for Spurs against Manchester City after a four-match absence with a hamstring injury. "What I think is (Tottenham chairman) Mr. (Daniel) Levy is not an easy guy to negotiate with".

"In that game I realised that this is the Premier League".

Beat City on Monday and Pochettino can take the attention away from the issues surrounding the club, but lose and it will be framed as further evidence that his team are now being cut adrift from England's elite.

"I feel the love from the people here".

"I think the circumstances of the past year, I think the club is not only focused on winning titles or winning games", the former Espanyol and Southampton boss said. "It's the worst, my feeling, but it's the best start ever for the club in the Premier League".

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino claimed Guardiola, his Manchester City counterpart, was disrespectful to the London club when he used the term previous year as it implied the England talisman was their only significant player.

A series of National Football League games are being held at the stadium, meaning the surface is taking a beating leading into Monday's big game between Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino's sides.

Virat Kohli’s Journey from 1,000 to 10,000 Runs in ODI Cricket
Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday became the fastest cricketer to touch the 10,000-run mark in the one-day global format. In Guwahati, riding on centuries by Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, India wrapped up the match with nearly 8 overs to spare.

"They've shown me how wrong I was", conceded Guardiola.

"That's why maybe the games against the contenders are becoming so important".

Laying City to win in the Match Odds at around [1.76], and therefore getting a Tottenham win or a draw on your side will reward you at odds of around [2.3] if successful. "That is going to happen in your stadium".

Guardiola, who led City to the Premier League title last season with a record points tally of 100, signed a contract extension with the champions earlier this year that will take him to the end of the 2020-21 campaign, but he also hinted that he could stay longer.

'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 perform at our best, have a bit of luck to win the game'. We are more comfortable at the Etihad than if we should play in another stadium.

"When I analysed this game, I realised this is the Premier League".

"All the players want to play good, be ready, be part of the team".

"They have a young team, a good 'keeper and good strikers".
