Guardiola was again stumble by Pochettino

Guardiola was again stumble by Pochettino

This is a rivalry that dates back to their days in Spain and now in England it may determine and the outcome of the title race. Mauricio Pochettino beat Manchester City (2: 0) at his own game and thus perhaps showed that he found the hang of Pep Guardiola.

As coach of Espanyol Argentine reached a draw 0: 0 in their first confrontation with Guardiola and his Barcelona in January 2009. A month later, surprising even achieved victory (2: 1) to "Camp Nou". He again do the same weekend of "White Hart Lane". And this time may be in equal position with your opponent, as Tottenham showed he was ready to fight with City in the Premier League. Tottenham outwitted and outplayed City with an intense and deep press, which is generally a hallmark of Guardiola. Finally Spurs could win with a comfortable lead, but even so a victory failed to show that the fight for the title will be.

Citizens were terrible in defense. Squeezed by high speed Tottenham, they were encountered familiar problems in rear positions from last season. The London team ended a run of six consecutive wins City and at the same time remained the only undefeated team after the first seven rounds of the championship. Pochettino approaches boldly with your choice of attacking staff and his tactics was successful because his players attacked opponents still in the forefront and thus forced him to admit horrendous errors. And Own Goal Kolarov was a typical example.

Delle Ali was the inspiration in midfield and the Son and the full-backs Rose and Walker did not stop running during the entire match. Pochettino players and beat City last season with a convincing 4: 1, but now showed humor and made clear message. The team from Manchester was torn from Spurs in midfield as did new goalkeeper Bravo looked weak link and every time the ball came to him, it seemed that anything can happen. City stabilize his game in the second half, after several missed chances, but they were irrelevant because the game was already won. Even victory could have been even more convincing result if Lamela had not missed a penalty.

Once in La Liga with Espanyol coach Pochettino claims were outsiders in their matches against Barcelona Guardiola, whose staff were Messi, Xavi and company. In England, however, it will be. Tottenham showed he was more than that. Spurs were surprised in the title race last season, but unlike since when retreated to Leicester, now it seems that they can bring things done.
