Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has come out to hail his team for the victory vs Arsenal. He recently revealed that Arsenal are so difficult to play against because they can be very aggressive when they want to, so his boys ensured they were ready for the challenge.
According to him, his boys cannot score lots of goals in every game, and 1 – nil victories are super amazing from time to time.
He added that Arteta knows Manchester City players very well, so it was never going to be an easy game against him.
His words, “They are aggressive with one-to-one pressing. They move really well in the pockets and speed from the sides. It’s so difficult to play against. We knew today would be one of the toughest ones but we scored early and we could control it,”
“The first 10-15 minutes were so good then the next half an hour they were much better than us. The feeling is that they are close. In the second half, we needed something to be more effective in our pressing and we were much better.”
“Of course, we could score the second and the third but we scored then they defend well. It’s so difficult to play Arsenal and Mikel [Arteta]. He knows our players so well. It is not easy to play and we play so, so calm and intelligent. It was a good game.”
“Every game you are not going to win games 2-0, 3-0, 4-0, sometimes when you win 1-0 it is so good. We have to realise what we are doing is so difficult. It is a struggle, a fight, behind the ball and that is why we like this result.”
“It is one more, one more. We think all the time the next one. That is now Champions League, then West Ham at home. One at a time. 39 points to play. We have 10 up front. So we have to win.”
