Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has identified Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal as one of the top teams in the Premier League right now.
Pep Guardiola said this following Man City’s Premier League 1-0 victory over Brentford on Wednesday night.
Man City defeated Brentford, thanks to Phil Foden’s first-half goal.
Asked whether Manchester City were in control of the title race, Guardiola told Amazon Prime: “There are 54 points to play for. It is not expected to have this distance for eight and nine, but Liverpool play one game less.
“But it is 54 points. In December, no one is champion. We are going to lose games. I see in my mind Arsenal, Chelsea, Southampton coming.
“54 points to play… 54.”
He added, “We have a game in London against Arsenal, maybe one of the top teams right now, the best Arsenal in the last four or five years.
“I cannot say more than congratulations to the team, but we must focus.”
Man City currently sits top of the Premier League ahead of Chelsea, Liverpool, and Arsenal.”
