Arsenal legend Ian Wright has given his take on Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola’s recent comments about Tottenham Hotspur on The Monday Night Club show on BBC 5 live Sport on Monday evening (7pm, October 2, 2017).
City manager Guardiola recently describe Tottenham as “the Harry Kane team”, referring to the striker’s goalscoring exploits so far this season.
Kane has been in stunning form for Spurs this season and has been banging in the goals for fun.
The England international striker has scored six goals in seven Premier League appearances for the North London club this campaign.
While discussing the Premier League title race, City boss Guardiola said, as quoted by Sky Sports: "It's in September, so Chelsea won 15 games in a row last season, were unbeatable and won the league, not easy, but they won it in advance.
“Of course this season has a little more problems because they [Chelsea] play every three days, that's always more complicated for all the teams.
"But we also have United, we saw again the Harry Kane team scores every day two or three goals.”
Former Arsenal striker Wright said on The Monday Night Club show on BBC 5 live Sport on Monday evening (7pm, October 2, 2017) about Guardiola’s comments: “That’s a side-swipe. That’s a dig, of course it is. It’s almost like dismissing the rest of the team. He is saying it's all about Harry Kane."
Kane is one of the best strikers in the Premier League, but he is not the only brilliant footballer in the current Tottenham team.
Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, defender Toby Alderweireld and midfielders Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli are just some of the brilliant players on the books of Tottenham at the moment.
Tottenham are third in the Premier League table at the moment with 14 points from seven matches.
