Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has taken a sly pot shot at Tottenham by suggesting that Mauricio Pochettino’s side are a one man team.
Harry Kane has been in the form of his life in September, scoring eleven goals for Spurs in just six matches. The latest being a brace in Saturday’s 4-0 demolition of Premier League newcomers Huddersfield Town and is the subject of Guardiola’s claim.
Guardiola’s comments suggest that Tottenham are over reliant on the England forward. Maybe Guardiola should concentrate on nurturing young, homegrown talent rather than getting his cheque book out at every opportunity in his desperation to buy the Premier League title.
City are currently five points ahead of Spurs in the table, with the sides set to play each other in December.
When asked about his side’s chances of winning the title compared to the other contenders, Guardiola told Goal.com: ‘We’re in September. Chelsea won 13 games in a row last season. They were unbeatable, they won the league. It’s not easy,’
‘Of course this season they play in Europe. It’s a little more complicated for all the teams.
‘We have United [and] the Harry Kane team who scores every game two or three goals.’
