Pep Guardiola expecting Tottenham to play attacking football against City

Pep Guardiola is expecting Tottenham to continue playing attacking football against his side. Manchester City face Ange Postecoglou’s Spurs side on Sunday in what promises to be an exciting contest between two sides who play attractive football. Tottenham have lost their past three Premier League games but their manager has vowed not to change how his side plays.

Speaking with the media during his pre-game press conference Guardiola is expecting Tottenham to continue playing attacking football. He said: “The courage, high line, so aggressive. Lot of combinations, use the keeper. Arrive in the sides, so dynamic, doesn’t matter who they play against, do my game. Happened in Glasgow and now here. They lost the last games, but the players know why. Lots of similarities when they were winning. Two reds against Chelsea, bad moments, but they are always positive.

The City manager also praised Postecoglu for the way his sides play. Pep Guardiola added: “He’s already there, in a short time, even the games they didn’t win lately, I’m impressed with how good the things are that they do and the chances they create. Aggressive in all departments. He came here and you recognise perfectly his team. Every team plays for the desire of the manager, what he’s done in Japan and Glasgow with Celtic and now. He makes football a better place, people like Ange (Postecoglou). I enjoy a lot their approach.

Tottenham made an impressive start to the season under their manager. They went 10 games unbeaten in the Premier League before they have lost their past three games. Injuries and suspensions to key players robbed them of several crucial players.

Despite this, they have continued to play attacking football as is demanded by Postecoglu. Sunday’s game at the Etihad could be an open affair if Tottenham play in a similar manner.
