Heading to London, Manchester City remain unbeaten in six Premier League fixtures in the capital, winning four in a row while Tottenham Hotspur hold an impressive Monday Night Football record of winning seven and drawing two in their previous nine on the weeknight.
"Later in my career, Glenn was always so good to me with England, and the reason I signed for Tottenham in 2002 was because I wanted to work with him".
As well as Kane last season, Son Heung-Min, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli all hit double figures.
"My admiration for Marcelo Bielsa is huge because he makes the players much, much better", said Guardiola early a year ago as Pochettino sang a similar tune saying, "Of course he's a great coach". The reigning European champions are understood to be giving serious consideration to sacking current head coach Julen Lopetegui after their worst start to a La Liga season since the 2001-02 campaign.
The Argentine manager has already revealed his faith in White as Pochettino invited the teenager to train with the first team earlier this year.
Mauricio Pochettino has reaffirmed his commitment to Tottenham after fresh speculation linking him with the Real Madrid job. They have to know: "the next game is here, and they have to convince me". "What I think is [Spurs chairman] Mr. Levy is not an easy guy to negotiate with".
With the top sides dropping so few points, Guardiola believes that games against the other title contenders have taken on added importance this season.
"When you play against the contenders it's nearly six points, isn't it?" he said.
Taking over relegation-threatened Espanyol on the other side of town in January 2009, Pochettino's first game in charge was a daunting Copa del Rey quarter-final against Guardiola's Barca.
I don't know, many things happened in the summer, many things that make myself not in my best mood or best humour.
"That's why maybe the games against the contenders are becoming so important".
"We've started with three games away against them [Arsenal and Liverpool, previously]". That's why it is so important to take those points. But nothing is going to change. Southampton is then next at home - the same points [are up for grabs, as against Spurs]. When you win, he doesn't win.
Spurs are the home side but will likely spend a lot of time without the ball - when they do have a chance to pin City back, it is imperative they don't allow quick counter-attacks to split them open. But, I've seen Tottenham a lot and they've shown a lot of character to grind results out because they struggle - really struggle to get that second goal to kill teams off.
"It was almost 10 years ago and, to be honest, I've improved a lot, I've changed a lot". "Normally injuries happen when they are not 100 per cent focused".
