"It was not the plan to be at Wembley, different things can happen like the National Football League and you cannot change the date and we need to accept that as reality and not complain".

Manchester City beat Tottenham easily at Wembley at the end of last season and, with its wide open spaces, I think it is a stadium that suits them.

The Citizens were 3-1 winners against Spurs at Wembley in their last Premier League meeting in the English capital back in April thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling. "It is incredible. It puts me in the best of myself when I listen - it's a masterpiece", he told the Spanish reporter.

"But it will be a tough game because Manchester City is one of the best teams, not only in England but in Europe". I don't know, many things happened in the summer, many things that make myself not in my best mood or best humour.

"The circumstance that happened in the last years, I think the club is not focused completely in winning titles or winning games", Pochettino admitted.

"I understand why in England you can stay at a club for 20 years in one place", Guardiola, who also claimed the League Cup for City last season, added.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino on this rearranged fixture being the first of five matches in 12 days: "That is not the ideal situation to compete - we have a problem, we create the problem and we need to sort the problem. I didn't expect any more", Guardiola said.

With the top sides dropping so few points, Guardiola believes that games against the other title contenders have taken on added importance this season.

Now in his third season with the Premier League champions, Guardiola feels an increasingly strong affinity with the club and the city. "That is going to happen anywhere".

'The first year (of his tenure) we dropped a lot of points against the contenders.

"In light of the above, and taking into account the restricted availability of manpower over the festive period, we have taken the decision to confirm today that all home games will be played at Wembley Stadium up to and including the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers on 29 December".

"Because at this moment of time, Liverpool actually look really unsafe and they are going to go a lot closer, and that is a real threat".

'I don't believe that in football you can find something that is impossible to do, but it will be hard of course because we need to play well and perform at our best, have a bit of luck to win the game'.

"Titles are important of course, and they have helped me have jobs and to keep working on my passion".
