Pep Guardiola Assesses Manchester City’s Performance
Pep Guardiola Evaluates Manchester City’s Current Form.
Pep Guardiola has discussed the current form of Manchester City in recent weeks in the English Premier League.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of the match against Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium, the Spaniard acknowledged that the Arsenal team currently outperforms his side, but this is not the first time he has found himself in this situation.
The lack of playing imagination in the last two games is the cause of the one-shot on target. You sometimes need a strong build-up and to stretch your defensive lines in order to have a chance. In the last two games, we’ve had trouble.
Additionally, he discussed what needed to be done to close the point gap between his squad and the Gunners.
It’s better [being eight points ahead], you can drop points. If you are behind you cannot drop points. Pressure is next game, we can’t think about it other to win the next. After the conditions dictate, if they’re good in all departments they’ll be there. They [Arsenal] are better than us so far. Many games to play. Don’t think about it, catch Liverpool who were in front in the last years, just think the next game and see what happens.
Manchester City were in the same situation last season when they played second fiddle to Liverpool for most of last season. They were eventually crowned Champions at the end of last season.
