"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", the Argentinian manager told beIN Sports.

"We kept Jamie Vardy quiet who's another good striker in our last game and if we can do that again we'll be happy". "It's the big difference today".

Pochettino's main signings came in defensive positions with the arrivals of Davinson Sanchez and Serge Aurier while Fernando Llorente arrived on transfer deadline day for £12m but the Spanish worldwide is yet to score for his new club.

Tottenham Hotspur striker and talisman Harry Kane has been named Premier League Player of the Month for September after a string of stunning performances.

Defender Sanchez joined from Ajax in a club record £42 million deal, but City signed three players - Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Bernardo Silva - for in excess of £40 million each this summer, while United paid £75 million for Romelu Lukaku.

The Cherries will face Tottenham at the Wembley Stadium in London in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

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.
