City are better with the ball and have more players comfortable with the one-touch passing that Guardiola likes, while Spurs employ a slightly more direct brand of football and try to win the battle in transition, ending up keeping possession as opponents drop deep against them.

"I'm sure Pep is looking at it thinking winning the league this year would be a much bigger achievement than last year".

"When you play against the contenders it's nearly six points, isn't it?" he said.

"It's a massive challenge for us", Pochettino said.

Pochettino, who has in the past been linked with the Real Madrid job even though he is yet to win silverware, said his depressed mood dated back to events in the summer.

"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". I know I always have a good relationship with you but my feeling is not the best feeling.

He said: "I think it is quite similar, the rhythm, to last season, more or less". "We have a lot of focus and you know very well when you are competing with sides, like we are in Champions League and Premier League, the most important thing is to fight in the same conditions as others".

Announced as the incoming Manchester City manager midway through the 2015/16 season, Guardiola officially took charge in July 2016. Spurs can leapfrog both Man City and Arsenal into third place with a win against the reigning champions.

"I think the most important thing ahead of the game is how we feel, how we prepare for the game".

This match could turn on a single decision and considering Man City have scored 20 goals from open play to Spurs' six, making use of set pieces will be crucial to the home side.

"It was not the plan to be at Wembley, different things can happen like the National Football League games and you cannot change the date and we need to accept that as reality and not complain".
