Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs frustration is understandable, says Jamie Redknapp

David Silva was in good form for City against Shakthar

"Because we play one of the best teams in Europe and the world". I'm pretty sure the Premier League don't like it, Tottenham too.

"When they [players] are fit, you have full focus on what you have to do", he said.

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.

Tottenham and Pochettino were the first team to hand Guardiola a defeat in English football, beating City 2-0 at White Hart Lane in October 2016.

Pochettino hinted that Tottenham's failure to sign any new players during the summer showed they are "not completely focused on winning titles" - and former Spurs midfielder Redknapp agrees.

A "six-pointer" at Wembley?

The ex-Southampton boss has now played down talk of a switch to Madrid, insisting he has heard nothing from Real and claiming he will be at Tottenham when they finally move into their new stadium in 2019.

"I feel very good at the moment".

But Guardiola rejected the notion that last term's player of the season would not be risked in a game the league leaders go into only two points better off than Spurs.

Kyle Walker's appearance in Manchester City colours against Tottenham at Wembley on Monday night will provide an untimely reminder of the riches that lie away from Pochettino's squad, with the former Spurs defender doubling his wages to £130,000-a-week when he joined City in the summer of 2017, but Spurs simply can not operate at that financial level.

"This season, my feeling is the worst".

City are unbeaten in the league this season and have won seven and drawn two of their nine matches, but they are on a roll which will have to experience a particularly bumpy 90 minutes if it is to continue.

"Many things happened in the summer, there are many things that make myself not in my best mood or humour. We had 100 points is because we were focused on all the games".

"When you know the pitch might not be in the best condition you have to be more ready than ever".

Announced as the incoming Manchester City manager midway through the 2015/16 season, Guardiola officially took charge in July 2016. Going by that metric, Benjamin Mendy is the most unsafe player City have, with the left-back (who actually plays as more of a left winger) having assisted five goals this season.

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

The Eastlands outfit haven't lost in the Premier League this season and the current league crown holders dropped points in a 1-1 draw with promoted side Wolverhampton Wanderers and title rivals Liverpool FC. The 28-year-old has missed City's last three games.
