Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola was delighted with the start of the Citizens’ season but reminded his players that they are still behind the leaders of the Gunners.


What did Pep Guardiola say?

The arrival of Norwegian striker Erling Haaland and his incredible record of 19 goals in just 12 appearances added to the feeling that the Premier League champions are unstoppable. But despite playing just two games in the PL and the Champions League all season, Man City’s head coach says they haven’t been as good as the Gunners and that the title race is far from over.

The Spanish manager said at a press conference that every year they’ve been a little better in some respects, but that’s just eight games of the Premier League season. According to Pep Guardiola, the important thing is that in the PL and in the Champions League during this period they are in a dream position – they have one win left to qualify for the last 16 in Europe and they have to fight, he thinks, against Borussia Dortmund to finish first and that’s important.

And in PL it is there. Guardiola says they can’t forget one thing, ladies and gentlemen, there is one team that was better than them. This is reality. In reality, Arsenal have been better than them so far. Pep Guardiola also said that they are not the best in the league, but it is important to be there and try to fight.


A little about the topic

Qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League would have been guaranteed with a victory over Copenhagen on Tuesday night, six days after they were beaten 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium. This will give Pep the opportunity to put his full attention on the PL ahead of the World Championship break in November.
