Pleased with his team’s performance against and the commanding 4-1 win against Arsenal was Pep Guardiola. The coach of Manchester City emphasized that he did not underestimate the “gunners” for a single second, while the “citizens” hold the fate in their hands.
“Congratulations to all the players and staff. We knew the qualities of our opponent. It was important to win against such an opponent and we achieved a great performance. At home, with our audience, we feel good, comfortable.
Most importantly, we have our destiny in our own hands. The next three matches mean many things. We are two points behind Arsenal with two games in hand and I would like to have another six points but that is not the case. I decided to start Walker, because I found that in Munich, last Wednesday, in the Champions League, against Coman and Musiala, we were struggling one-on-one.
And against Martinelli, I judged Walker to be the right defender. I didn’t underestimate Arsenal for a second, I know what a good team they are. But when we play like we did today, we have an incredibly competitive team.” were Pep’s words.
