EPL Why Man City are not top of the table – Guardiola. Pep Guardiola, manager of Manchester City, said that Arsenal’s “outstanding” play is why they are not now leading the Premier League.
After their 2-0 victory against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup third round on Wednesday night, Guardiola addressed the media.
For City, goals from Riyad Mahrez and Julian Alvarez helped them advance to the competition’s next round.
Guardiola responded when asked if he was happy with his team’s performance in the Champions League and Carabao Cup, saying, “We might be league leaders, but Arsenal have been amazing.
“A member of my staff informed me that we had more points than we did at this time in the previous four seasons.
“We’ve done well, but the other team has done better,” we said.
But being close to the top of the Premier League is the major objective.
