Guardiola Can’t see any chance Man City stop Arsenal from winning title on current form.
City have dropped eight points in their last six Premier League games to trail Arsenal by five points, having played a game more. Asked whether Arsenal’s meeting with fellow contenders Manchester United on Sunday represented a chance for his platoon to close the gap, Guardiola claimed it wouldn’t count unless they bettered their own form.”
It’s not about that,” he told intelligencers.”( Indeed if) they lose against United, if we play this way we aren’t going to win, we are not going to catch them. We’ve to change ourselves.” hear, we’re alternate in the table,” he added.”
We aren’t 25 points behind Arsenal, still we’re there. It’s 57 points still to play.” But as to whether they can still win this season’s title, Guardiola responded” In this way, no chance.” We’ve the FA Cup, we’ve the titleholders League and coming season but the club has to reply.”

But despite a thrilling alternate- half comeback to triumph 4- 2, Guardiola latterly blasted his players and the club’s suckers for complacency after winning four Premier League titles in five times. Ahead of hosting Wolves on Sunday, the former Barcelona player and trainer repeated his communication.”
I won four leagues in Spain when I was a player. Four in a row and the fifth wasn’t the same, and sixth wasn’t the same. I wasn’t starving enough.( Too important) caviar.” I understand the players but I’m also( to motivate them) and the president knows that. I want to be also but if I lose the platoon I can not be also.”
In distinction to his own platoon, Guardiola was full of praise for Arsenal, managed by his former supplemental Mikel Arteta.” They’ve everything.( They’re good) with set- pieces, good protective organisation. How they win conflicts, how they celebrate pretensions, how they talk, how they decide, how they look at each other.” This is football, this is tactics as well. And right now we do not have it.”
