Manchester City will take a trip to North London where they are expected to lock horns with Tottenham Hotspur in the first leg of their quarter finals double-legged tie of the Champions League competition.
The Lilywhites now seem to have all their struggles and problems under their feet with their long wait for their new stadium birthing a beautiful edifice worthy of Champions League football.
On this new ground, Tottenham overcome Crystal Palace by a 2-0 scoreline. They are now on course to muster all the morale they need for this game having gotten back into the top four of the Premier League.
This is the North London club’s first appearance in this stage of the competition since 2011 and they will be willing to make a strong case against Guardiola’s Manchester City.
Pochettino would consider getting to the finals of the Champions League an extra feather to his cap. Consequently, the Spurs gaffer would be looking to employ all the weapons in his arsenal to come out of tops over Manchester City.

Guardiola will be licking his lips at the prospect of playing Tottenham at this stage of the competition compared to the likes of Barcelona and Juventus.
Manchester City are on course for a quadruple season finish having secured a place in the FA Cup finals after a 1-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion, claiming pole position on the Premier league log and already winning the EFL cup.
The Citizens were knocked out by Liverpool at this stage of the competition last season but will be hopeful that they run out easy winners over Tottenham who hold close to nothing in terms of the pedigree and experience in the competition.
