Pep Guardiola admits Man City “need to change it immediately” if they are to catch Arsenal

Although it is clear that the Premier League title will go to either the Emirates or the Etihad, the upcoming week could be pivotal in the title race. In his press conference ahead of the Manchester derby, Pep Guardiola was open about the implications of the upcoming week on the title race. “Many games to play, of course, it’s a big week we cannot deny it,” he said at his pre-match press conference. “We play Spurs [in the next game]. Many games to play.

“After Southampton, I’m not worried about the titles, it’s to recover who we are, game by game. This is what we have to do, important games in the season we were there.

“Just with the hypothetical importance against teams, the other ones we were not there. It’s normal after the results of previous seasons. We have to change it immediately.”

This week, Manchester City will face Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, and Wolves, while Arsenal will face Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

All those betting on Arsenal winning the Premier League will be hoping that Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs put in strong performances to deny the “Cityzens” maximum points and that Arsenal can silence Tottenham and Manchester United. If results go Arsenal’s way, the 5-point lead they have over Man City could grow to 11 points this week; if that happens,

Guardiola will have to do something miraculous to steal the Premier League title from Arteta’s hands.

  1. Hmmm getting ahead of ourselves here. There’s nothing miraculous about Arsenal losing to Man Utd and to Spurs away. Or even emerging from it with 1 or 2 points.

    There’s also the small matter of 2 PL games against City.

    We have a lot to do win anything this season, let’s not jinx it. Thye modern media management approach by sports managers is to big up the chances of the other team to put pressure on them, that’s all Guardiola is doing.

    1. Absolutely, right.
      There are too many opinions appearing on this site where people are looking ahead instead of focusing on the present.
      The gap between us and the chasing pack is far too close for some of the pomposity being expressed.

    His very first line too ignores the fact that if United beat City (in the next hour or so), they will then be only a single point behind City with equal games played. And plainly well in the title race too.

    TALK OF A POSSIBLE 11 POINT LEAD OVER CITY IS POSSIBLE BUT VERY UNLIKELY. It could very easily be reduced to nothing or even them being a point ahead after they play Spuds on Thursday, while we do not play.

    THAT is why it is a biased and not a rational analysis that Daniel chooses to give us. Not one I appreciate, TBH!

    I far prefer sober minded, deep thinking, sensible analysis to obviously biased hype. Sigh!

  3. With Man Utd beating City today, moving to 1 point behind them with the same games played, there are at least 3 contenders for the title now.

    Which only goes to show how quickly things can change.

  4. I know there are going to be some hiccups but the title is for The Arsenal.
    Pep, you can’t do much.

  5. What a ride this season is becoming,
    Man Utd are turning into arguably the most in-form team in the league.

    At this rate they’ll soon climb over Man City as it looks like more teams can still shock them Citizens.

    It’s an Arsenal – Man City – Man Utd title race now

    I think we can do it, we’ll better Man City at the Emirates, same with Man Utd also at the Emirates (worst we’ll come out with draws)

    Consistency against other teams should see us nick it by 1/2 points

  6. On the side
    Casemiro is such a SeniorMan

    Liverpool, they played like they already knew they would lose and didn’t give a damn

    Also Caicedo & Estupinan are some brilliant ballers
