It was freezing cold today but preparations heated up for our weekend clash with Tottenham.

We face Spurs at the Etihad on Sunday – our third home game in a week - with a 16:30 (UK) kick-off for this latest exciting encounter.

It pits Pep Guardiola with Ange Postecoglou, two attacking coaches – setting up what could be an enthralling contest as second hosts fifth in the Premier League.

City were hard at work at the CFA this afternoon as they geared up for the top-flight encounter.

We go into the game unbeaten in eight across all competitions while Tottenham have lost their last three – against Chelsea, Wolves and Villa.

Despite that run, Guardiola is a big fan of what Postecoglou is doing in his first season in the capital, saying: “I’m impressed in many things they do and the chances they create, how aggressive they are in all departments.


“He came here and in a few months he recognises his team perfectly.”

In spite of the respect, the manager will be hoping he can continue their losing streak this weekend.
