Pep Guardiola says five teams in Premier League title race

  • David Silva was in good form for City against Shakthar

Silva made just 15 starts last season following his £44million arrival from Monaco but Kevin De Bruyne's absence in the last two months has provided him with the opportunity to play in an attacking midfield role and he's more than proven his worth to Pep Guardiola.

Cuts have, nonetheless, had to have been made in other areas of the club, such as marketing and campaigns, and it has annoyed an bad lot people: Levy, his directors, the contractors having to smash up areas of the stadium they only concreted in a few months ago, Tottenham's fans, opposition fans, rival clubs.

Taking over relegation-threatened Espanyol on the other side of town in January 2009, Pochettino's first game in charge was a daunting Copa del Rey quarter-final against Guardiola's Barca. "We are going to take a decision which is the best line-up".

"Many things happened that make myself not in my best mood", said Pochettino.

Sanctions should come as "a European response" and be "clear and coherent.in all domains", the French leader said. Saudi Arabia has announced the dismissals of six officials who worked directly under bin Salman.

The sidelines of the turf, where both teams stood during the action, looks as though it has badly torn up while the middle of the pitch has also weathered.

"I feel the love from the people here". Against PSV he wasn't guilty of the result. Stuff like that happens in football. One is to win games, but it is not the priority to win games. "What I think is (Tottenham chairman) Mr. (Daniel) Levy is not an easy guy to negotiate with".

Imagine what it'll be like on Monday night, 24 hours after an National Football League match between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Philadelphia Eagles.

"Maybe it's good for us because we're going to face one of the best teams in Europe or in the world", Pochettino said with a half-laugh.

Eovaldi threw four more pitches than any member of Boston's staff had in an outing this post-season. Instead he became Boston's record-tying ninth pitcher when he entered to start the 12th inning.

Spurs announced a fourth delay in the stadium's opening Friday, moving five more home games through December to Wembley.

"To play in Wembley, Milton Keynes - different circumstances, so we have to say "come on, if we are realistic, we need to celebrate the position we are in and receive praise for that" but it doesn't matter if we don't get praise". I am sure Tottenham have a good [groundsman].

"When that happens, it is a solid team but to win games, especially important games like in the Champions League or Tottenham, you have to be so solid at the back and our conversion rate in front must be a little bit higher".

A victory for Spurs, however, completely disrupts the dynamic as well as the status quo as Spurs would go above City in the table, pushing City down to 5th provided the rest of the top 5 win their matches.
