Satisfied Pep Guardiola reacts following Gunners draw

City coach Pep Guardiola reacted satisfied following their home match against Arsenal.


Though the meeting ended in a goalless draw, Guardiola had the following to say post-match:

‘I prefer to win, but [will] take the point. It was a hard game. The team make me so proud.

‘We wanted to try, and they allowed us to go to our left side. The side from Odegaard and Saka and after they make incredible pressing.

‘When we contact with last line, they drop really well. They defend the low block really well.

‘The space was really difficult to find. We cannot press much because they played mainly long balls.

‘Rico, Manu, Rodri were unbelievable. The second balls against Arsenal are really important.

‘The chances they have in first half, they press really well. In the second half, I couldn’t expect more.

‘Arsenal have scored many and conceded few. We didn’t create much, it was almost actions, but they defend really well. We tried.

‘I recognise the intention we had. We take the point and in nine games we see what happens. The only thing we can do is to refresh mind and legs and go into Aston Villa.

‘They defend well and had a lot of players surrounding Erling.

‘Be patient and find the pass, be precise. They defend really well with an accumulation of players.

‘Always have been difficult. When we arrived in the final third their main target was to not concede a goal and they did it well.’

The gaffer had nothing bad to say about the referee, though some fans likely did.

‘I’ve nothing to say on the referee. The game was clean. Anthony Taylor must be happy because nothing wrong happened.

‘The game was fun and well-fought. When the referee becomes more important than the players it happens.

‘Today was perfect from both sides and the referee was really good. Everyone defend the ball and their position, but the rest was okay.’

City sits in the third place on the Premier League table.
