FANS have been in disbelief after Pep Guardiola named an incredibly strong bench against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Spaniard’s options for substitutes consisted of Aymeric Laporte, Kalvin Phillips, Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker, Kevin De Bruyne, Stefan Ortega and Joao Cancelo.
Fans took to social media to discuss the craziness of the bench as one tweeted: “The entire Man City bench would start for us.”
A second commented: “Man City’s bench is stronger than our XI.”
A third wrote: “If there’s been a better bench in Premier League history, I’ve not seen it. Ridiculous.”
A fourth said: “Every single outfield player on Man City‘s bench today gets into our starting 11 somewhere… agree?”
The entirety of the bench cost the club an estimated £373.5million.
This figure is more than most Premier League side’s starting elevens and probably some of their entire squads.
Spurs go into the game in 5th place in the league table after their weekend defeat to North London rivals Arsenal.
A win for Antonio Conte’s side will help them close the gap to 4th placed Newcastle.
