Following Manchester City’s comfortable 3-1 victory over Leeds United on Wednesday night, manager Pep Guardiola spoke about his side’s Premier League title battle with Arsenal. The Catalan coach, while admitting that failing to secure a third successive title would be down to his own players, suggested that it would not be easy this term.
During his interview, Guardiola made reference to Manchester United’s recent title drought – using the Reds’ lack of success in the past few years when discussing the difficulty of being successful in the top flight. The City boss claimed that it was surprising that United had gone a decade without lifting the Premier League title.
United, who last won the league title in 2012, have not truly gone close to finishing first in the top flight since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, but under Erik ten Hag, there is a hope, if not an expectation, that things will change in the coming years
City currently have a six-point lead over the Reds in the Premier League table, but the two sides have different targets for the campaign. It is important, however, that United take note of Guardiola’s warning.
“Listen, we want it, but when you see Arsenal, [Manchester] United in the struggle to be there, they have something special when they are there and we have to fight,” Guardiola told Amazon Prime Video. “You always have the feeling we have the time, but when you fight teams like that we don’t have time, so we immediately have to try to make a result otherwise it will be impossible.
