REVEALED: Pep Guardiola 'Plan' In Case Arsenal Wins Their Last Three Matches

Former Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha has issued a warning to Arsenal and the rest of the Premier League that Pep Guardiola has a plan in case the Gunners win their last three games and close the gap on the league leaders.

Currently, the second-placed Gunners are just one point behind Guardiola’s champions-in-waiting, with their final three games against Brighton, Nottingham Forest, and Wolves presenting a chance to overtake the Manchester-based outfit.

However, Guardiola’s side are no strangers to the pressures of the business end of the season, having won the league title four out of the last five seasons.

With a game in hand, City will look to wrap up the title as soon as possible, and have four tough fixtures against Everton, Chelsea, Brighton, and Brentford in their run-in.

But with Guardiola’s tactical acumen and experience, Onuoha believes that City are well-equipped to deal with any challenge that comes their way.


The former defender, who played under Guardiola during his time at City, suggests that the Catalan coach has already formulated a plan in case Arsenal do mount a late challenge.

But with Arsenal winning at third-placed Newcastle United on Sunday – and with City having one eye on the Champions League and FA Cup – some have suggested that the momentum is back with Mikel Arteta’s team.


The north London club are looking to lift the trophy for the first time in 19 years and quizzed about their win over Newcastle and the impact it may have on City, Onuoha says that it will be ‘irrelevant’ to the league leaders.

‘Given how successful he has been in the past, Pep Guardiola will have a plan in place which will revolve around Arsenal winning all their games,’ Onuoha told Sky Sports.

‘If there is rotation [against Everton] it will be for reasons other than results which are out of his control. He will control what he can.

‘I fancied Arsenal to win [at Newcastle]. For as good as Newcastle have been, Arsenal could finish the season on 90 points.

‘Man City will expect Arsenal to get to that, and they are on track to get 91 points currently.


‘Seeing Arsenal win away somewhere, where people thought they might lose, is irrelevant.

‘At the end of the day, they are going to put points on the board, because that is what they have consistently done.

‘For Pep Guardiola, it won’t change his ideas on rotation or plans.


‘It’s a cliché that every game is a final, but in some ways it is because if you lose one, before you know it your dreams are up in the air.’

With City’s star-studded squad, including the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Haaland, and Phil Foden, Guardiola has an array of options at his disposal and is likely to rotate his squad to keep players fresh and focused during the crucial final stretch of the season.

Furthermore, with City’s impressive defensive record this season, conceding just 24 goals in 34 games, Guardiola’s side will be confident of shutting out opposition attacks and securing the victories they need to clinch the title.

As the season draws to a close, the battle for the Premier League title is heating up, and Guardiola and his City side will be determined to hold on to their narrow lead and secure yet another league crown.

With their quality, experience, and the tactical genius of their manager, it is difficult to bet against them. However, Arsenal will not give up their title ambitions easily, and the next few games promise to be full of drama and excitement as the two sides fight it out for the ultimate prize in English football.
