Pep Guardiola avoided throwing bells quickly Despite the fact that beating Arsenal (4-1) leaves Manchester City two points ahead… with two games to spare.
“It’s an important game, but not decisive. We can’t be naive: we are still two points behind Arsenal. The next three matches are really important. These three meetings will determine what we can do. Pep emphasized that it wouldn’t be easy for us.
The former Barcelona and Bayern coach highlighted, in particular, the relationship formed by De Bruyne and Haaland: “We’ve always had an amazing attacking threat, but the relationship between Erling and Kevin is extraordinary. We try to take advantage of it whenever possible.”
Oddly enough, Guardiola didn’t look entirely happy: “We won, but we didn’t play well. We were patient and communicated more with the players up front, who kept the ball well.”
Praising the mentality of his people: “Arsenal had a great first round, and they got 50 points. He has been our competitor since day one, But in the bad moments we were there.”
