Guardiola looking forward to Haaland v Kane

Pep Guardiola believes fans will see two strikers at the top of their game when City face Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

City's Erling Haaland leads the Premier League Golden Boot race with 25 goals so far while Spurs man Harry Kane is second on 16.

The pair will line up on opposite sides in North London this weekend and ahead of that clash, Guardiola was full of praise for both players.

"We are extremely happy with Erling Haaland and of course I think Tottenham are extremely happy with Harry Kane," he said.

"What an exceptional player. What Harry Kane has done is amazing, the goals, the quality he has.

"Harry Kane remains one of the best strikers I have seen in my life. Not even winning. It doesn’t matter.

"It’s like with managers. There are incredible, incredible managers that do not win titles, they are bad managers because they don’t win the title? No. Sometimes it happens.

"I think Tottenham are happy to have him. We are extremely happy to have this young player like Erling that I think is going to give us many good years."
