Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou has said he is relishing the challenge of their FA Cup clash against Manchester City.

Spurs will host last season’s treble winners in the fourth round tie at the Tottenham Stadium on Friday night.

Both sides played out a 3-3 draw in the last meeting, and Postecoglou is expecting another thrilling game, and is sure there will be goals.

“You can’t script it, so it’s probably going to end up being 0-0 and fairly dull! But I do [relish these occasions],” Postecoglou told The Standard.

“I loved the 3-3 at their place. It was a cracking game. There were so many storylines within the game, I loved that.

“That’s what I love about football and that’s what you want. Obviously you want to win because that makes you feel better about what’s happened but you’re playing arguably the best side in the world and we feel like we can have a crack at them. We will, and we’ll see what the outcome is.”

“I’ll be surprised if there’s no goals tonight,” he added.

“I think it will be a great challenge and it should be a cracking game. Both teams are looking forward to seeing how we match up.”
