Pep Guardiola makes Arsenal prediction ahead of title race vs Man City

Pep Guardiola is of the opinion that Arsenal will not lose many more points in the Premier League, and he does not think Manchester City’s experience in past title races will be of any use.

Arsenal is currently leading the Premier League by eight points, but Manchester City has a game in hand. City will face Liverpool after the international break, while Arsenal will play against Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium.

Despite predictions that City will catch up and surpass Arsenal, Guardiola has cautioned his team that Arsenal will now be fully focused on the title race since they are no longer competing in the FA Cup and the Europa League.

“I would love to be in the position of Arsenal, rather than have the experience of winning four Premier Leagues in five years,” said Guardiola.

‘I’d prefer to be in Arsenal’s position in the Premier League than the one we have. The advantage is that they are eight points in front of us, this is the real advantage. The past is the past, experience doesn’t count. Absolutely nothing.

“When I hear managers or players say, ‘I don’t have to show anything, I don’t have to demonstrate anything’, it’s the most awful sentence.

“You have to prove it every single day, again and again and again. The past is the past. Memories when you are a grandfather? It’s okay, it’s nice. If people think ‘I don’t have to show anything’, no, you have to, again and again, otherwise you have to retire.”

Guardiola was asked whether he thought Arsenal would have difficulty handling the pressure of the title race, and he responded by saying that he did not think so and did not believe in that notion.

“They have many points still to play for, many games to play, and a lot of things can happen.

“But for the consistency Arsenal have shown this season… one game a week now, out of FA Cup, and out of the Europa League.

“With one game a week, you can have an incredible focus and you can prepare. I have the feeling they won’t drop that many points.”
