Tottenham fans want Pochettino to start Aurier against Man City

Sunday, 17 Dec, 2017

England right back Walker will line up against Tottenham on Saturday having made the move to Manchester City in the summer for a fee of around 50 million pounds ($66.56 million).

Tottenham will try to stop City's record-breaking 15-match winning streak in the Premier League at the Etihad on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola says Kevin De Bruyne's incredible work off the ball as well as that on it makes it easier to manage Manchester City.

Victory embellished the record for consecutive English league wins City had set in Wednesday's 4-0 win at Swansea City and the breathtaking manner of it was further evidence of their apparent invincibility. "It's not only that we need to win today, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow".

Spurs fans are desperate to see the summer signing from Paris Saint-Germain start, with one fan even claiming that 27-year-old Trippier "is garbage".

Dele for Lamela but totally agree otherwise.

"Right now I'd rate him as one of the best, definitely", said the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach. If you're reading this, know that this author is a massive Spurs admirer: the job Mauricio Pochettino has done coaching a young and hungry squad is nothing short of incredible, and they've improved every season under him.

The danger is that other Spurs players will now be casting envious glances at Walker, and considering whether they too would be better off with wealthier clubs - both in terms of their wage packets and their chances of winning silverware.

"That's why we are so happy because, in football, it's not possible to win every single game".

"I think it was a good experience for the team, when you win and play well you maybe don't learn, so you must learn from this type of game", he told BBC Sport.

City's attacking football is a thing to behold but there was nothing fancy about their 14th minute opener as Gundogan was left unmarked to head in from a corner - a goal Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino described as an early Christmas present.

"I have been through tough times so especially games like today where you are able to improve your self-confidence are very important".

It was initially hoped that the Belgium worldwide would be available for selection once again ahead of Tottenham's festive fixture pile up, however following a recent assessment, the 28-year-old is now set to be missing until February.
