The manager of Manchester City, Pep Guardiola has revealed his conversation with his players before the game against Arsenal Football Club.
The Spaniard was speaking in a pre-match press conference ahead of this weekend’s game against another London side, Fulham. According to him, he did not have to say anything to the players because they knew exactly what to do in such a crucial game.
Sometimes the boys are more calm or aggressive, sometimes you have to lift them. Against Arsenal, I didn’t say a word. Playing for the Premier League title? They know perfectly. They warmed up so calm, relaxed, they know exactly what they have to do.
However, he said the league is far from over because his team are two points behind Arsenal and a lot can happen in a week.
If we were 10 points ahead then I would say it’s over. But we’re two behind. We have to beat West Ham and Fulham. The reality, if today the season finished, they would be Premier League champions. You can lose points in one week. We have to be aware.
Arsenal currently have 75 points after playing 33 games, two points ahead of Manchester City ( 73 points) having played two games more. The Gunners play Chelsea next while the Cityzens play Fulham before West Ham United in the space of four days.
