Mauricio Pochettino insists he does not care about the outcome of Manchester City v Liverpool as Tottenham’s title rivals prepare to face one another on Thursday night.
Spurs moved back into second in the Premier League with a comprehensive 3-0 win at Cardiff on Tuesday, bouncing back from their shock loss to Wolves at the weekend.
Goals from Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-Min inside the opening 26 minutes sealed a comfortable win for Pochettino’s side, who closed the gap on leaders Liverpool to six points.
A win for Pep Guardiola’s side at The Etihad will tighten the top of the table, however, Pochettino insists he will watch the game as a neutral.
Speaking to Sky Sports he said: “I don’t care – of course I will watch, it will be an unbelievable game and I enjoy football. The day after we play FA Cup very close to Liverpool and we need to be ready again because we have busy fixtures.”
