Pep Guardiola addressed the media today, ahead of his side's Champions League clash with Tottenham tomorrow night, and offered high words of praise for Mauricio Pochettino's men, labelling them as an 'incredible' team, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.

Spurs take a one-goal lead into tomorrow night's game at the Etihad, and should they manage to score, Manchester City's task will become an incredibly difficult one.


Tottenham have more than enough quality to progress through to the semi-finals against City, but they will have to be on their very best form in order to do just that.

Guardiola is certainly a big fan of Pochettino's side.

The Spaniard spoke to reporters today, and responded when asked what he makes of the Tottenham side without Harry Kane, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News

"It is the same strong team that it was two or there years ago when I arrived. Tottenham are incredible."

City will surely come out of the blocks fast against Tottenham, and Pochettino will be hoping that his side can withstand any kind of pressure that they are put under.

And if Spurs play their natural game, they have every chance of beating City, even without Kane.
