Mauricio Pochettino says Spurs must improve after 'poor' Man City defeat

British media reports have said City are targeting Southampton's Virgil van Dijk, while Real Sociedad's Inigo Martinez has also been linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium.

Kevin De Bruyne says Manchester City's squad, like manager Pep Guardiola, are not entertaining thoughts of going the Premier League season unbeaten, despite demolishing Tottenham 4-1 on Saturday.

The only person that can beat the Catalan is, quite literally, himself.

"I am proud, I don't want to be humble, I am proud with my staff".

"We are busy, we know what's coming in the next couple of weeks". We need to win today, tomorrow and in one year and two, three, four years.

"That's happened because I was with three unbelievable clubs: Barcelona, Bayern Munich and this one".

"Most of the players grew up there, so I think English football can be pleased with what this manager has done with these players, helping the national team to be better".

"He is a good example for the young players, for our academy players". That belongs to Arsene Wenger and his unbelievable [Arsenal] team.

In a space-age stadium, Guardiola is offering a vision of the past.

There's no doubt that Manchester City seem to just be on another level this season.

Spurs were the only opponents that appeared capable of laying a glove on City.

Pochettino continued: "There's always motivation to play this type of game".

After Christian Eriksen's solitary goal for his team, Pochettino said: "We need to learn from this situation".

We were poor but, not only that, the way that we conceded the first goal was a massive mistake for us. They are a very risky team. "It was a thing that happened in that moment".

"I don't know, believe me, I don't know what we are going to do because it's not..."

Kevin de Bruyne scored Manchester City's second goal with Raheem Sterling then grabbing a brace to make it 4-0.

In 12 games against his opposite number, Pochettino has only got the measure of Guardila twice; once at Espanyol, during their time in La Liga, and the other with Spurs.

But once again it was the home side who came close to doubling their lead on the 67th minute through Sane, the winger driving past Kieran Trippier and firing an awkward shot straight at Lloris with the keeper making a great reaction save.

The City bench erupted in fury shortly after when Alli caught De Bruyne high on the ankle in an terrible challenge and was shown only a yellow card.

What they lack in established left-back options, however, Guardiola's team boast in a plethora of creative options.

They are already well-prepared for virtually all other eventualities, like Atletico Madrid returning for Sergio Aguero to help fill the void of Antoine Griezmann's imminent departure.
