Guardiola tries to heal Pochettino rift

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that his side and, the vast majority of Premier League teams, can not compete with the two Manchester clubs when it comes to the transfer market.

After a slow start to their summer transfer window, Spurs leapt into action in August, adding Davinson Sanchez, Paulo Gazzaniga, Juan Foythe, Serge Aurier and Fernando Llorente to their squad for an outlay reportedly close to £90m.

United, behind City only on goal difference, invested close to £150m on Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof as they continued their recent trend of massive pre-season spending.

Pochettino admits that it is tough trying to live with the Manchester clubs in particular, telling BeIn Sports: "The difference these days between clubs in the Premier League is that there are clubs, like City and United, who sign who they want and when they want".

But Pochettino says there is a marked difference between the way the Manchester clubs are able to spend and how others must be more cautious.

Spurs, who now sit 3rd in the Premier League table behind the two Manchester clubs, return to action this Saturday with a league clash versus Bournemouth at White Hart Lane.
