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.”

        Draw tonight means City can still reach 100 points for the season, and Harry wants a brace. Everyone satisfied.

    • Urbane Sturgeon April 14, 2018 at 5:23 pm

      Townsend is one of those players who has a single skill which is 10% higher in quality than the majority of ordinary PL players for that particular skill; this appears to have lead him to believe that he’s therefore at least 10% better than the majority, whereas in fact, the entire rest of his skills are at least 10% lower in quality than those of the majority of ordinary players in the PL.

      Go on the Convoluted Minor Opinions!

      • East Stand April 14, 2018 at 5:27 pm

        Townsend has never been quite as good as he thinks he is, like you say, a bit of a one trick pony.

        • SeattleSpursGuy April 14, 2018 at 5:35 pm

          A funny thing is I’ve seen him doing commentary. He’s well spoken, a good analyst and makes smart observations about the game. But his brain departs when he’s on the pitch himself.

        • gloster1861 April 14, 2018 at 5:43 pm

          That’s because his brain is in a jar of formaldehyde and not inside his skull.

          • Urbane Sturgeon April 14, 2018 at 5:47 pm

            He can’t think as quickly as he can run.

  • Legoverlass April 14, 2018 at 4:30 pm

    Thankfully I am out this evening so will miss 90 mins of bum clenching and nail biting. A big plus that Aguero is not playing unless he comes on for the last ten minutes and bags a couple. Fernandinho being out is also good news as he has been bang on form. Just hope our defensive line up does not rattle and roll and our full backs do not brain fart in crucial moments along with a Dier moment. If Toby is fit then should he play as his name alone on the team sheet gives me more hope of less madness at the back.

    Watching football on a Saturday’s is like being in a motorway traffic jam. You choose a lane hoping it’ll be the one that moves (has goals), then you see the lane next to you move, so you join it just as it stops and your former lanes begins to move. The moral of the story is….

    • Still Nil Nil April 14, 2018 at 4:15 pm

      So if someone plays 18 games, of which as an average he’ll be good in say 12, could get the trophy over somebody who could’ve played 36 ish games and was good in 28 ish games so in effect more consistent over s longer period against more variety of team and possibly played against more good teams.
