‘Arsenal Deserve To Be Top Of Premier League Table’ —Guardiola

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said Arsenal deserve to be top in the Premier League table because they have been the better team this season.

City are eight points behind leaders Arsenal ahead of Thursday night’s clash with Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium.

After successive defeats to Southampton in the Carabao Cup and Manchester United, Guardiola says the most important thing is to get back winning, starting with Spurs.

“Pressure is the next game,” the Spaniard said in his press conference. “We are not able to think about big expectations apart from winning the next game.

“If [Arsenal] are eight points in front it’s because they deserve to be there. They have been better than us so far but there are still many games to play – it’s how we come back.

“Always when we are behind I say don’t think about. We caught up with Liverpool in last years.

“Just think about the next game and after we see what happens. We have been in this position many times in the past. It’s not the first time we are there.”

And asked if he was calm about being eight points behind Arsenal with more than half of the season still to play: “I have never been relaxed even when eight points in front. During the game, before the game, never,” he said.

“It’s better [to be eight points ahead] . You can drop points and still you are there and when you are behind you cannot drop points.”
