After a tremendous start to the season, Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has shared his opinions on Tottenham Hotspur’s chances of winning the championship.
The addition of Ange Postecoglou to Spurs has significantly improved their play. With eight wins and two draws from their first ten Premier League games, the North London team is currently atop the standings.
The only teams without a loss this season are Tottenham and Arsenal, with Postecoglou’s team now leading the Gunners by two points.
This season, Tottenham has become a completely different team thanks to new additions like Micky van de Ven and James Maddison. But there is still a long way to go, and Postecoglou is aware that his side faces a formidable obstacle.
Postecoglou said to Sky Sports following Tottenham’s victory against Crystal Palace on Friday, “Let them dream.” “That’s the main thing about being a football fan.”
Although Postecoglou declined to take the Spurs title talk seriously, Guardiola was frank about his assessment of the team’s chances.
The manager of Man City believes that Tottenham might have an advantage because they are not participating in the European Championship this year.
“Take a look at Tottenham; they are playing so well, they play once a week, and they will stay in shape all season long. Tottenham will attend, according to Guardiola.
But he also believes that Arsenal is a “really good team” and that they will challenge for the championship once more this year.
“They’re a good team, Arsenal, and sometimes they make man marking, which lets you do some process, but after that, they’re very aggressive,” Guardiola remarked.
“They are a really good team with a clear pattern.”
Naturally, Guardiola will be hoping that his club wins the title by defeating both Arsenal and Tottenham. Man City wants to win the Premier League four times in a row. If they succeed, they will be the first side in history to accomplish this feat.
It will be intriguing to see how the Cityzens fare in their big game later today against rivals Manchester United. With a victory, Guardiola’s group will cut the difference with Tottenham to only two points.
