Tomorrow’s match pits Mauricio Pochettino against Pep Guardiola on the sidelines as the two coaches rekindle their long-standing rivalry.
Of course, Guardiola prevails overall since he has managed the best team in the division the entire time, while Pochettino has fielded a number of squads with varying levels of strength to try and compete. Guardiola has 13 victories from 22 games against Pochettino.
The fact that Pochettino defeated Guardiola while managing Espanyol, Spurs, and PSG is intriguing. While Pochettino was at Southampton, they did not coincide, although he did defeat Man City during that period.
This is a really excellent record against Guardiola, as records go. The game tomorrow will be extremely difficult since we are a flawed team playing against a formidable opponent. However, in football, anything can happen, and at least our manager is skilled at positioning himself to outplay his opponent.
