Pep Guardiola believes Arsenal is unlikely to lose many more points in the Premier League, and insists Manchester City’s experience in previous title races counts for ‘absolutely nothing’ in this season’s competition.

Currently, Mikel Arteta‘s Arsenal side sits at the top of the Premier League table, eight points clear of City, who have a game in hand and sit in second place.

Following the international break, City will begin their Premier League campaign against Liverpool at home on Saturday, while Arsenal will take on Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium later that same day.

With Arsenal currently sitting eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table, many football pundits predict that Manchester City will catch up and overtake them during the remainder of the season.

However, City’s manager Pep Guardiola has warned his players that Arsenal is now solely focused on the title race after being knocked out of both the FA Cup and Europa League.

City will face a tough test at home to Liverpool as they kick off their Premier League campaign following the international break, while Arsenal will host Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium on the same day.

Despite their game in hand, City needs to maintain their consistency and win games to stay in the race for the title.

‘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.’

When asked if he felt Arsenal may struggle to cope with the pressure in the title race, Guardiola said: “I don’t think so, I don’t believe in that.

‘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.’
