Merson added: "It just may suit Manchester City that little better as they have a bit more pace in their team and will not be fully reliant on pass, pass, pass".
Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that Dele Alli has started full training again after missing the last month of action with a hamstring injury. City have created 154 chances to score as a team so far this season, putting them firmly top of the league in that department (and in the more literal Premier League table department).
After taking time to understand the question at first, Pochettino, following a slight pause, said: "I don't care".
"It's odd because it's my worst feeling here in four-and-a-half years", Pochettino, who has taken Tottenham to third, second and third-placed finishes in the last three seasons, told reporters at the club's swish training ground.
The reason for these mentions is that both Pochettino and Guardiola - proteges of Bielsa in a footballing sense - draw hugely from his tactical innovation and sporting strategies, so much so that these influences inadvertently find their way into their team, which is why both Tottenham and Manchester City have curiously intertwined paths in terms of their footballing philosophies.
Tottenham have made their best-ever start to the Premier League season after collecting 21 points from their opening nine games.

I don't know, many things happened in the summer, many things that make myself not in my best mood or best humour. "We have a lot of focuses and you know very well that when you are competing with sides like we are in the Champions League and Premier League, the most important thing is to fight in the same conditions as others". One is to win games, but the club needs to be all focused in trying to win titles.
Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has spoken up on reports linking Tottenham Hotspur coach, Mauricio Pochettino to replace manager Julen Lopetegui at Real Madrid. Kevin De Bruyne is back for City and is one of the few players who could pull off that quarter-back role with his range.
"I think the most important thing ahead of the game is how we feel, how we prepare for the game".
"The circumstance that happened in the last years, I think the club is not focused completely in winning titles or winning games", Pochettino admitted.
