Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham have no intention of selling Dele Alli to Manchester City despite Xavi’s claims Pep Guardiola is interested in the player.

“He’s in a period when he loves to talk, he’s in Doha [playing for Al Sadd] and listen, he was Barcelona player, he’s my enemy,” said Pochettino of Xavi ahead of his side’s trip to Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

“He tried to destroy our focus to win because he hates me because he’s Barcelona – player, fans, you know.

“I know him [Xavi] very well, I played against him a lot and when I was a manager [at Espanyol].”
