He’s the king of mind games. Very recently, ahead of the Manchester Derby, Pep Guardiola spoke about the positive form of Tottenham and our chances of getting our hands on the title.

While our own manager Ange Postecoglou has time and again refrained from entertaining questions about the Lilywhites potentially winning the league come the end of the season, it is enjoyable, to say the least, to see a rival manager rate our chances at the converted title.

Tottenham and Manchester City are first and third on the table respectively with Arsenal separating the two sides. Our North London rivals along with us, are the only two unbeaten teams in the division so far, and the title race, shows a lot of promise and signs of heating up as the season goes on.

Title Contenders or Pretenders?

Speaking to the press via football.london ahead of the Manchester Derby, Pep spoke about Ange‘s Tottenham side when questioned about the title and here is what he had to say:

“Look at Tottenham, how well they are playing, they play one game a week, they will be fit throughout the season. Tottenham will be there.”

Guardiola’s observation about Tottenham’s schedule holds merit. Unlike some of their competitors, the Lilywhites are not burdened with the demands of midweek European competitions. This one-game-per-week schedule can undoubtedly work to their advantage in terms of player fitness and maintaining high-performance levels over the course of the season.

Tottenham’s success in the title race will depend on several key factors. Ange Postecoglou’s tactical acumen, the consistency of the squad, and the contributions of star players will all play crucial roles. Additionally, as Pep said, it is equally important that the players remain fit to ensure our best possible push to the title.
