Manchester City were the last team to beat Spurs in the Premier League, way back in December, and Pochettino says they will be worthy winners.
“I think we are going to play the best team in England,” Poch told PA Sport. “They deserve to be at the top. They were the most consistent team, playing with fantastic players of course and fantastic coaching staff and fantastic manager. They deserve a lot of praise.
Pep Guardiola has ruled Sergio Aguero out of Manchester City’s trip to Wembley Stadium tonight and cast doubt over whether the Argentine will feature again this season as he struggles to return to full fitness.
Aguero picked up a knee injury in training last month ahead of the victory at Stoke City, eventually returning to action last weekend with a 14-minute cameo in City’s Manchester derby defeat. When asked when City’s all-time leading goalscorer might be able to make a comeback, Pep said: “He’s not ready. I don’t know. We cannot forget he was injured for one month.”
