Tottenham Hotpsur boss Mauricio Pochettino has today claimed that Manchester City player’s should expect a taste of their own medicine should Spurs end City’s 15-game winning streak.
This comes after the alleged tunnel scrap that occurred due to loud music in the changing rooms at Old Trafford, as City beat their domestic Rivals United 2-1.
Speaking to the Express, The Argentinian manager admitted that before a game you can hear music coming from both sets of changing rooms, but this has no effect on the outcome of the match.
“Before games, both changing rooms have loud music. But only one can win,” Pochettino said.
However, Pochettino is not worried about the noisy distraction, and believes it would serve as a message should his side lose today at the Etihad.
“I never complain if another team celebrate because sometimes it’s good when you lose, and you hear all that in another changing room. It’s good to feel the pain,” Pochettino added.
“Basically, if we run more, we play better and we care more, we can beat them. We need to translate that feeling to the opposite changing room.
“I’m hoping for loud music tonight!” said Pochettino. “When we won our games at Huddersfield, and at Wembley against Stoke, the players put the music on and it’s so loud. It’s normal.”
Spurs go to the Etihad in fourth place in the Premier League, 18 points behind high-flying Manchester City and a surprise win could be what’s needed to add some heat to the title race.
Man City have enjoyed an incredible start to their Premier League campaign, winning 16 of 17 games so far and drawing the other, against Everton at the start of the season.
