Guardiola: City Is Almost Perfect

Guardiola: City Is Almost Perfect”

"Of course we are frustrated in terms of the result but the performance was outstanding against a Burnley side who are the most British of teams in terms of long balls and the way they play", said Guardiola after the Premier League game.

Recent defeats away to Bournemouth and Swansea City saw Arsenal fall to sixth and well off the pace in the race for Champions League qualification for next season. "I decided not to use him, let him recover and come back better against Leicester and Basel". That's fewer than any of their top-five title rivals. Chelsea are fifth at 8/11 while Tottenham are priced at 3/5 and Liverpool at 2/9, so the odds are certainly staked against them.

"What they have done this season, Burnley, is incredible".

Wenger's men then face a Europa League double-header against Ostersunds before taking on Manchester City in the final of the Carabao Cup at the end of the month. "They are injured. "I'd like to have 18 players and could have called on one of the second team, but they played yesterday".

Burnley are seventh in the standings, well above expectations for a team with one of the smallest budgets in the league, and they stuck at the task despite City outplaying them for large stretches of the game. And there's a huge game between West Brom and Southampton, who sit two places and three points above them in the segment of the table that no grown adult should ever refer to as "the drop zone". It's little surprise the Belgium worldwide was looking forward to the three days off that Guardiola gave his players. West Ham visit Brighton, whose DJ may or may not have Toto on his playlist.

The north Londoners have been revitalised with the arrivals of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January and they look to have their spark back again.

There are two other Premier League games.
