Other than Manchester United, who have made a hard start, only Spurs have been beaten by a team outside last season's top six while leaders Liverpool have only dropped to City and Chelsea. "But it's the best start ever for the club in the Premier League".
He said: "When you play against the contenders it's nearly six points, isn't it?" City has looked strong as of late and is one of three undefeated teams in the league.
Pep Guardiola will see his side return to the summit once again if they can come out on top against Spurs, a side who begin the night just two points behind his team.
However, Argentine coach Pochettino admitted though that he is still not sure if Alli will be ready to feature in his sides crunch fixture against Man City this Sunday at Wembley.
Spurs owner Joe Lewis - who spends most of his time on his €130m yacht in the Bahamas - could invest a chance of his €4billion fortune into Tottenham to either finance the stadium project or player investment and change the club's image overnight, but he has never shown an inclination to get involved in the club during his 17 years as its reclusive owner.

The Citizens were 3-1 winners against Spurs in their last meeting at Wembley in April as Manchester City edged toward their first Premier League title under Guardiola.
"I don't know, many things that happened in summer, many things that make myself not in my best mood or humour". And of course always when we arrive at like a final game, we always fail.
"That's why maybe the games against the contenders are becoming so important".
Guardiola said: "The first year we dropped a lot of points against contenders".
"It was not the plan to be at Wembley, different things can happen like the National Football League games and you cannot change the date and we need to accept that as reality and not complain".
As he acknowledged, a new stadium is no guarantee of success - especially against the spending power of a team such as City.
