“Manchester City is on top in Europe” claims Spurs Manager

So far so good, Manchester City have had an impressive run in this season with securing the number 1 spot on the tally sheet of the Premier League and Mauricio Pochettino claims that Pep’s side is currently the best in Europe.

The Premier League Giants have been performing exceptionally great this season, with 9 wins out of 10 Premier League matches and have a 100 percent record in Europe, scoring plenty of goals in the process.

According to statistics of Whoscored, they have scored 47 goals with an average of  3.35 goals per match and also along with that, their passing accuracy is at par (89.4%).

Pochettino’s side who recently defeated the Spanish Giants Real Madrid in the Champions League has also been going phenomenally strong this season so far.

But Pochettino thinks otherwise and believes City is on to something even greater.

Speaking to reporters ahead of Sunday’s match at home to Crystal Palace, Pochettino said: “They [City] are doing very well in the Premier League and Champions League, showing unbelievable performances.

“The challenge for them is to be consistent for the whole season but they show great quality. Today, right now, they are the best team in Europe.”

Spurs with their next match against the bottom of the table team- Crystal Palace, is expected to outplay them with their sensational gameplay.

Pochettino spoke highly of his opposing manager Roy Hodgson and said, “It will be tough. It is always difficult to play after a game on Wednesday and also because the result was massive, but we must be ready.

“Crystal Palace are a good team. True, they struggled at the beginning of the season and changed their manager.

“Roy Hodgson is very good, we had good relationship when he was England manager and his team will be organised.

“The challenge is to be focused and forget the Real Madrid game and start to think Crystal Palace is another final for us because after defeat against Manchester United it’s important to win again in the Premier League.”
