Tottenham Hotspur

Pochettino ready for battle

20th April 2019, 08:12 by Nick Harris

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino knows Manchester City will be fired up when they face them again on Saturday.

Spurs ended City's quadruple bid when they sealed a dramatic away-goals win in the Champions League on Wednesday night and they could deliver a massive blow to their Premier League title hopes in the lunchtime kick-off on Saturday.

City boss Pep Guardiola has previously said his side needs to win all of their remaining games if they are to retain their title and they will go back to the top of the pile if they beat Spurs.

Guardiola believes the hurt from Wednesday's extraordinary game will serve as motivation, but Pochettino has denied City will be out for revenge.

"Not revenge," he said.

"For sure, they are going to move on like us from the Champions League to the Premier League.

"They are going to fight for a massive thing which is to win the Premier League and the principal challenge is to win the Premier League for them."
