‘I don’t think Arsenal will…’ – Guardiola reacts to NLD derby result, predicts Gunners’ next three results – “We would have preferred they lost, but we cannot control what they do,”…



Arsenal clinched a hard-earned 3-2 win against Tottenham Hotspur on the road today to maintain their position at the top of the Premier League standings.


Despite briefly extending their lead to four points over Manchester City, Pep Guardiola’s team responded by narrowing the gap to just one point with a 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest later in the day.


The defending champions still have one game in hand, and Arsenal will be hoping for them to drop points in their remaining four matches.


Arsenal has three matches remaining against Bournemouth, Manchester United, and Everton. However, even winning all three games will not guarantee them the title if Manchester City does not slip up in their upcoming matches against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Fulham, Tottenham, and West Ham United.


When asked if the outcome of the North London derby added pressure on his players before their match against Forest, Guardiola responded with the following statement after the game.


The manager of Man City expressed a preference for their opponents to lose, but acknowledged their lack of control over the outcome.


Guardiola was questioned about whether the outcome of the North London derby added stress to his players before their match against Forest, and he responded as follows after the game.


“While we would have preferred their defeat, we have no control over their actions,” stated the Man City manager.


“They achieved a favorable result, with only four games remaining. I highly doubt Arsenal will drop any points, so we are well aware of what needs to be done.”


Arsenal has displayed remarkable performance, yet they may come to regret the expensive defeat against Aston Villa two weeks ago.


He noted the good result obtained and emphasized the importance of focusing on their own performance with four games remaining.


Despite Arsenal’s impressive form, the manager highlighted the potential impact of their recent defeat to Aston Villa.


Arsenal’s recent performance has been commendable, but their defeat to Aston Villa could prove to be a costly setback. Despite conceding only 28 goals in 35 league games and losing just five times, their title hopes have been hindered by the formidable presence of Manchester City.


Manchester City, under the guidance of Guardiola, have only suffered three defeats and have displayed an invincible form in recent months. It would require an extraordinary display from any of Arsenal’s remaining opponents to prevent Manchester City from securing victories.


Following their loss to Villa, Arsenal no longer have full control over their destiny. However, they must continue to win matches in order to have a chance at claiming their first league title since 2004. Manager Mikel Arteta and his team will closely observe Manchester City’s games, hoping for any potential slip-ups.
