Guardiola compares Arsenal to “the best team in Europe”

If there was a time to be an Arsenal fan, this was it. The Gunners have this season been brilliant in every aspect of the game. Let’s give credit where credit is due: Arsenal have been the real deal this season in the Premier League.

They have defended well, dominated games, and scored goals at will. Everyone wants to talk about how good Arsenal have been, and even Pep Guardiola, after his side’s 7-0 Champions League Round of 16 win over RB Leipzig, mentioned Arsenal as a team that he feels is playing good football in the top leagues in Europe.

“Napoli are perhaps the best team in Europe this year,” said Guardiola to Sky Sports Italy. “In terms of playing style, they’re very close to Arsenal. Inter and AC Milan are back. I am very pleased.”

It is great to hear Arsenal being labelled as a team playing good football from our reliable sources. When a rival praises you instead of criticising you, there is no doubt that you must be doing something remarkable.

On Arsenal enjoying the good run they’ve been having Arteta told, “It is incredible, and that means that we have a lot of people doing the right things at the club. In the team, a lot of players contributing immensely and especially the support that we have, which, in my opinion, has absolutely transformed this team with that energy, so I’m really happy.”

Arsenal are slowly re-establishing themselves as a European powerhouse; I believe so, but do you?

  1. Its sheer mind games, don’t be surprised after we beat Crystal Palace in the Deby on Sunday, he claims we are out of sight.

    Am seeing even Haaland has join in after scoring five goals in the week, claims only The legendary Frenchman (Henry) knew how to score many goals

    1. Well Arsenal need to get used to it (being about by opposition managers)

      But I see what Pep is saying as being complementary, in fact Arsenal is up there with best teams in Europe. Maybe he Pep was replying to a question

  2. I can’t wait to see us back in the CL next season. I believe Arteta will be more astute in the cup games, it’s different from the league tactically speaking, and I think it bodes well that Arteta won a cup in his first no. of months with us, so I have a feeling that we could do quite well on both fronts next season. If this one [season] is a barometer then our future looks quite bright you’d imagine
