Guardiola names Man City’s rivals that will challenge for title in future


Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has admitted that Arsenal will be their closest Premier League title challengers going forward.

City are on the brink of a record fourth-straight title this weekend if they defeat West Ham on Sunday.

However, they could lose it if they drop points and Arsenal beat Everton at the Emirates.

Ahead of these fixtures, Guardiola expects Arsenal to be title challengers for years to come.

He told Sky Sports: “For the future? Arsenal are giving the message… and we take it.

“I have a few certain things in my life. I wake up in the morning and I am going to sleep in the night.

“The other certain[ty], with the age they [Arsenal] have, the manager they have, the way they’ve played the last two seasons – they will stay here for a long, long time. That’s why we get the message.”
