Man City boss Guardiola: We must not worry about Arsenal


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has told his players to forget about leaders Arsenal.

Though City, with victory over Wolves today, can reduce the Gunners' lead to just two points ahead of the clash at the Emirates, the boss feels that unless his players are at their best in the coming weeks and months, Arsenal won't be caught by his team.

“It's not about If they lose against United," said Guardiola.

“If we play as we did (against Spurs) we will not catch them.

“We have to change ourselves. If Arsenal continue to win there will be no more pleasure to congratulate them. It's not about two or three points.

“Slowly, we will find out. I see what they have now with set pieces, they defend in the box with five in the back and win duels with transitions.

“How they celebrate, how they talk, how they look at each other. This is football. This is tactics. Right now, we don't have it.

“Still we are here. We are second in the table. We are not 25 points behind, still we are there with 57 points still to play – but in this way (first half versus Spurs)? No chance.

"We have the chance to recover for FA Cup, Champions League, next season. It's unacceptable the goal against Liverpool, the second goal against United…

“I am sorry guys, we will be in the record books for many things we have done but that is the past. Now we are here, and our fans want the second half (performance versus Spurs) more often."
