For those that watched Manchester City's extraordinary documentary on Amazon Prime, fans of the game will understand that Guardiola likes to use his full squad and with injuries always an occurrence, players on the fringes need to be ready to step in should they be needed.

It was a bold, fearless endeavour, but anyone who has had any kind of work done on their house - a new conservatory, an extension - knows that it nearly always ends up three times as expensive and takes twice as long, and that's if you're lucky.

Guardiola said. "These are important".

Tottenham's impressive domestic form is at odds with their Champions League struggles - Hugo Lloris's red card in midweek proving a turning point in the 2-2 draw against PSV Eindhoven, their only point from three games so far.

"We are happy that he started [training] today with the group", Pochettino said in his pre-match press conference.

A "six-pointer" at Wembley?

Spurs owner Joe Lewis - who spends most of his time on his €130m yacht in the Bahamas - could invest a chance of his €4billion fortune into Tottenham to either finance the stadium project or player investment and change the club's image overnight, but he has never shown an inclination to get involved in the club during his 17 years as its reclusive owner. "I'm pretty sure that Tottenham have a good green keeper", Guardiola said.

A win for Tottenham on Monday would see them leapfrog City in the Premier League table and while Kane remains their biggest goal threat, with seven already this season, Guardiola knows they are from a one-man team. "I don't think they are quite as sharp or as quick to the ball as last season, but they are still doing very well and that owes a lot to Pochettino".

"It's odd because my feeling is the worst feeling I've had in the four a half years that I've been here", he said. "I had better feelings in previous seasons".

"Man City is a team that won the Premier League and are so competitive".

I don't know, many things happened in the summer, many things that make myself not in my best mood or best humour. "We had 100 points because we were focused on all the games".

Announced as the incoming Manchester City manager midway through the 2015/16 season, Guardiola officially took charge in July 2016.

"That's why maybe the games against the contenders are becoming so important".

"The first year we dropped a lot of points against contenders", Guardiola added.

"But it's easy to see in the last few years how we act in the [transfer] market, how we act in everything, and how the other teams were acting".

Saudi crown prince vows to bring Khashoggi killers to justice
Dozens of people stood vigil outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Thursday to demand justice. They say Ms Haspel was allowed to listen to the audio during a visit to Turkey earlier this week.

Unfortunately, directly in front of Tottenham are City, who are arguably the best team in the country and have been for the past year.
