Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino wants 'respect' after Antonio Conte comments

John Stones, Raheem Sterling and Brahim Diaz all scored, but City could - and perhaps should - have won by a bigger margin with Gabriel Jesus missing a sitter and Sergio Aguero hit the post twice.

In Manchester City after the failure of last season is an expensive change of scenery, the recent players base nearly free of charge the team Guardiola, and they are replaced by players for a lot of money. It means we have good players.

"They played better than us", Pochettino added.

Walker was on the winning side as City comfortably triumphed 3-0 - a result that flattered Tottenham if anything - but Pochettino has pointed out that the Lilywhites are still to make their own signings.

"The reality is we want to win in two weeks when we start the Premier League against Newcastle". But it's hard to judge the level in pre-season. We prioritised training and to try to get fit.

"I like to show respect to another way and the people that behave in another way, only I expect the same from the people that compete with us".

Pochettino wasn't impressed with his rivals' words, taking the chance to address them on the eve of Tottenham's pre-season clash against Manchester City.

Spurs have come close to clinching their first top division league title since 1961 but could only finish in the top three during the last two seasons. "We can not speak about playing a Premier League game today in Manchester or London". "It is only to show him they were disappointed".

"There will be more players (coming in), one in the middle, that's for sure", club president Josep Bartomeu said recently.

'There are four, five teams maybe who have to become champion now and that will put great pressure on them and that makes the Premier League the best league in the world to watch.
