Pep Guardiola has launched a veiled dig at Jose Mourinho’s tactics as the fallout from the Manchester derby continues.

Speaking ahead of Manchester City’s game with Tottenham, the Spaniard named Tottenham and Chelsea as teams that stick to their footballing principals. The exclusion of Manchester United didn’t go unnoticed.

‘I think Tottenham are with Chelsea as the best team in wanting to play football,’ said the Man City manager.

‘They don’t expect their opponents [to force the play], they want to make their own game. It is another amazing test for us after games every three days.’
