Pep Guardiola has reminded Manchester City that despite their recent domination, Arsenal and Manchester United’s long title droughts demonstrate that success in the Premier League is not inevitable.

City are chasing a third successive title – their fifth in seven years with Guardiola at the helm – but currently sit five points behind the Gunners in the standings.

Following Wednesday’s victory at United, Guardiola argued in an interview with Amazon Prime that City cannot afford to take their success for granted given the troubles of rivals United and Arsenal during their heyday in the 1990s and 2000s.

“You always have the feeling we have the time, but when you fight teams like [Arsenal and United] we don’t have time, so immediately have to try to make a result, otherwise it will be impossible,” he said.

“[Arsenal] didn’t win [the league] for a long time, and sometimes this margin makes the difference, and we talk a lot about that, we have to try to do.

“It’s not about doubting these players, how should I? I’m here with success thanks to them, I know they are able to do it so we know something is going to change and we will be there.

“When 90s Arsenal and United were there dominating, the Premier League, expected there would be a decade of them not winning a Premier League? It could happen to us.

“That is warning I have to say, and if we are not going to do it we don’t have to change managers or players because this club right now, Manchester City, we want to be there as much as possible.”
