Graham Roberts destroys Tottenham on Twitter after loss v Man City

Pochettino described City as the best team in Europe on current form and it seemed to chime with the vibe that has built around them after 16 wins and one draw in 17 league games this season that he was asked whether he thought they could last the campaign without defeat.

City are now 21 points clear of Tottenham, but Guardiola was full of praise fro Maurcio Pochettino's side - a team they failed to beat either home or away in his first season at the club.

Ten minutes in and Pep Guardiola's men were starting to pile the pressure on Spurs; a Sergio Aguero low drilled effort forcing a rapid diving save from Hugo Lloris, only for Rahem Sterling to blaze the follow up over the bar. They are being talked about as one of the best teams of the Premier League era, but Guardiola believes there is room for improvement.

"Tottenham, with Chelsea, is the best team in the way to play football", Guardiola said.

Pochettino is looking forward to the reunion and does not fear the financial power of City and others picking further holes in a highly respected squad.

"I want to tell you that when we won our games, like at Huddersfield or at Wembley against Stoke, the players put the music on and it's so loud".

Milestones and landmarks have tumbled for City this season, with their most recent being an English record for the number of consecutive league wins, which they have now set at 15 and counting.

"But I'm not anxious, because in the end it's always three parts in all the situations in football - the players, the club that owns the players, and another club [that might] want some players".

"No, absolutely not. We are here to win titles, we had a great start, it's still more than half (of the season remaining) so it's very difficult, very hard".

"We're not anxious. We know how our project is and who we are, and in the end we try to develop our project not only thinking about today and tomorrow, but thinking long-term", the Argentine said.

"It's important to play better, that is the most important thing".

"It's not that we need to be fearless. Of course for us it's a tough game but in the same way a fantastic challenge and an exciting game".

"When you are so strong physically, you solve all the problems that way but when you get to a certain age - 29, 30 - after that you need to think more about what will happen".

"When you're playing a team with good quality, if we take risks, we give them the possibility of making chances".
