Tottenham extend Wembley Stadium stay through to 2019

Tottenham extend Wembley Stadium stay through to 2019

"I will (always) be a Manchester City fan, it would not be possible to train another team in England like Manchester City", Guardiola said in an interview with BBC Radio 5Live.

Spurs head into Monday's clash between the two sides at Wembley trailing impressive champions City by just two points. I think in the past I felt better.

Guardiola signed a contract extension with City in May, running through until the end of the 2020-21 season, after inspiring his side to dominant Premier League and EFL Cup triumphs.

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.

Guardiola feels his team have largely maintained last season's standards but he remains concerned about the number of chances they are not converting.

"I think he is already a top coach", Guardiola added.

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.

"I think we are on a different level - but that doesn't mean we can not beat them in one game", he said.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino claimed Guardiola, his Manchester City counterpart, was disrespectful to the London club when he used the term a year ago as it implied the England talisman was their only significant player. That's why the games against contenders become so important.

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

He said: "When you play against the contenders it's nearly six points, isn't it?" "That is going to happen in your stadium".

"The first year we dropped a lot of points against contenders". We are more comfortable at the Etihad than if we should play in another stadium.

Man City have been as prolific as ever this season and look like they're capable of scoring at least two or three in every game they play, regardless of the opposition.

And after everything he has been through with the club and the city, he admitted: "I am sorry, I will be a Mancunian for the rest of my life".

"People said in that period, "City are going to win the Premier League" and in that game I realised, when I saw how physical they are, how good they are, how (they play) high press, how many good things they do - this is a team".
