A Manchester City Clash and a Monaco Duel

However things will only get tougher for Tottenham again, as just three days later they will face Premier League’s best Manchester City and Spurs killer Sergio “Kun” Agüero at home on September 26th.  Having not beaten the Citizen’s since April of 2013, Spurs have mightily struggled in their previous four matches losing all four, to a total score of 16-2.  No need for me to delve deeper.

The important thing for Pochettino and his men is to realistically come away with a point at home.

At the very least if it does so happen to be a late Kun Aguero goal in the 85th minute, at least some of us including myself believe in moral victories.  Do what you will.

Returning back to Europa League, Spurs will travel south to the French Riviera, where they will face off against top French side Monaco.

Having finished third last season behind Paris St. Germain and Lyon, they successfully advanced to the Champions League quarterfinals beating Arsenal in the Round of 16.

Eventually losing to runners-up Juventus; they will prove to be a great test for Mauricio Pochettino, as they look to figure out how to manage without the likes of Geoffrey Kondogbia (Internazionale), Yannick Ferreira Carrasco (Atlético Madrid), Layvin Kurzawa (PSG) and now most recently Anthony Martial (Manchester United).

Aside from Kurzawa, Spurs courted all three over the summer, but came up short as big clubs Inter Milan, Atlético Madrid, and Manchester United all eventually came in for the swoop.
