At one point in the new year in 2019, Tottenham were pushing Man City and Liverpool close for the Premier League title.
The Lilywhites were just a handful of points behind the eventual champions, Man City, before falling off in a big way towards the end of the season.
Spurs eventually scraped a fourth-place position in the league to secure Champions League football for another season.
Of course, they also famously knocked Man City out of the Champions League and lost to Liverpool in the final last season, so Spurs have a lot of recent history with these two clubs.
Liverpool welcome Man City to Anfield this weekend, just a couple of weeks after Spurs visited and lost 2-1. The result between the two heavy-hitters may go some way to deciding this year’s winners.
With the Argentine being a very busy man, Pochettino was asked whether he would be watching the big game this weekend.
He said (Football London): “I love football. I love different sports. Tennis, golf, but my priority is football. To watch a game like this, of course, I will be in front of the TV watching this, because my priority is football.”
