Mata expecting Man Utd title fight despite City's record run

The Spain global told reporters in the wake of a 1-0 victory over Bournemouth: "In any other different season, we probably would be top of the Premier League with this amount of points (38). I think him too, the same". I am happy not with the results but the way we play.

"We just speak about that with the club, with Txiki [Begiristain, City's technical director]", Guardiola said when asked about potential January business.

England global Dier has been used in central defence in recent games as Tottenham cope with injuries and suspensions to key defenders and the 23-year-old is relishing his partnership with Belgian Jan Vertonghen.

In fact, the Argentine manager has admitted that if the club don't do one thing, they could lose more. "Statistics are good, but I have the feeling we can be much, much better". We also need to be learning from the games we didn't win and then carry on through this hard Christmas period.

"So far, no-one can stop Manchester City, that is true", Pochettino stated at his pre-match press conference on Friday as he continued, "They are having a fantastic season and they deserve all the praise".

"I am never [going to complain] if another team celebrate because sometimes it's good, when you lose, and you hear all that happens in another changing room, it's good to feel the pain".

Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva have arguably gained the most plaudits for their respective efforts, while Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus have also starred.

Spurs play a similar game to the blues and despite their struggles this season they have more than enough to hurt City.

He said: "The record is OK, but records stay there and one day are going to be broken".

Everton won 1-0 away to struggling Newcastle City and now sit in the middle of the table, while the hosts are just two places above the drop zone.

"I agree with you in terms of the aura", he said. "That's what has happened since the 19th century".
