Pep Guardiola speaks out on Arsenal victory and the title race

Manchester City destroyed Arsenal 3-1, after Sergio Aguero’s hat-trick.

Following the game, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has spoken out to the press and disuccesed some topics which you can find out below.

Guardiola on the title race and Liverpool’s game against West Ham tomorrow.

“I can’t do anything in that game. Unfortunately we don’t have a week off. We rest and now it’s Goodison Park. We’d prefer West Ham beat Liverpool of course. Liverpool would have preferred Arsenal beat us. I can’t control that. Tottenham are incredible, their mentality to fight and fight in the last minutes…”

Did Pep think City had lost the title after losing to Newcastle?

“No. Many things are going to happen. Now we are two, tomorrow it can be three, five again. I’m not in the mind of Jurgen and the player. Every press conference you say put pressure on Liverpool. I don’t know. We have to be ourselves. That’s the main target we want to achieve.”

What did he think of the performance?

“With the players always I’m happy. I was not upset after the Newcastle game. I was not upset today. When they lose the easy balls I become more upset that normal. But it’s football. I don’t play, you don’t they play.“

Guardiola ends by discussing the title race again

“I prefer to be in Liverpool’s position rather than where we are. The pressure is when you’re behind. If you lose points it’s tougher. When you’re top with distance you can lose points and still be there. We didn’t recognise our team against Newcastle. Today at least we came back.”
