Mauricio Pochettino: ‘Manchester City will not be after revenge’

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is determined to further derail Manchester City‘s season when the two clubs meet again on Saturday – but he acknowledges how tough it will be.

Guardiola believes the hurt from Wednesday’s extraordinary game will serve as motivation, but Pochettino has denied City will be out for revenge. “Not revenge,” he said. “Fo...
