Premier League Match Against Arsenal Is A Final: Man City Manager Guardiola


Manchester City have Arsenal within their sights.

Saturday's comfortable 3-1 victory over Leicester City leaves the defending champions trailing the league leaders by just four points and with a game in hand.

Arsenal's 2-2 draw with West Ham United on Sunday was a consecutive draw where they gave away a two-goal lead as last weekend they drew 2-2 at Liverpool. This opened the door for City in the race for the Premier League trophy.

City now face a pivotal three games which could make or break their season as they aim to complete a Treble of trophies.

They travel to Bayern Munich with a healthy 3-0 advantage after the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, before playing Championship side Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola's side should progress from both of those ties, but their next league game is a potential title decider against Mikel Arteta's men, at home on Wednesday, 26 April at Etihad Stadium.

"Like I said in the previous press conference, it is to win win win," said Guardiola.

"They [Arsenal] have had an incredible run so far this season, I don't think they will drop many points and we have to be in there.

"It is important for us to arrive at the match by winning today and [it is] a final against them in the next Premier League game."
