Despite being pleased with Manchester City’s early-season performance,says Arsenal is better. He warned his team that they still trail league leaders Arsenal.
The Premier League champions have an irresistible aura thanks to the addition of Erling Haaland, who has an astounding record of 19 goals in just 12 matches. The City manager claims that his team hasn’t been as excellent as Arsenal and that the title fight is still very much alive despite the fact that they have only drawn two games all season in the Premier League and Champions League.
In certain ways, we were better each year, but there are still just eight games left in the Premier League season, he said at a press conference. The most significant thing is that we are in a fantastic position to win the Premier League and the Champions League at this time. We need one more victory to advance to the round of 16 in Europe, and we must compete against Borussia Dortmund to do it.
And playing in the Premier League counts. We shouldn’t forget that there has always been a team that has performed better than us. This is the truth. Actually, Arsenal has outperformed us thus far. Although we aren’t at the top of the league, it is still crucial to show up and try to compete.
Six days after being defeated 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium, a win over Copenhagen on Tuesday night would ensure qualification for the Champions League knockout stages. Guardiola will then have the chance to completely concentrate on the Premier League before the World Cup break in November.
With a win over Southampton on Saturday, City will climb to the top of the table ahead of Arsenal’s difficult match against Liverpool the following day.
