Pep Guardiola has successfully guided his City team to four of the last five Premier League title triumphs.
Manchester City are battling for title glory this year and they are getting a tough competition with Arsenal. Pep Guardiola has insisted experience in winning Premier League titles has no say on their current battle with Arsenal.
The former Barcelona manager has successfully guided his City team to four of the last five Premier League title triumphs. They lost to Liverpool in 2020.
Mikel Arteta’s side has made their grip stronger on the Premier League trophy with a lead of five points. However, anything can happen because Arsenal have a game left with Man City.
Despite the gap that separates the two teams in first and second place, some continue to believe that Manchester City’s experience in Premier League title battles will show at the end of this campaign.
“Listen, if experience works, the team who wins the previous season will win every single season. Experience in sport is a new challenge. Look, Liverpool lost today against Bournemouth. A few months ago, 9-0. Everything is so difficult,” said the Man City coach.
“What they have done in the past, is the past. You have to do it again because football is unpredictable. Nobody expects many things to happen in football, the people take for granted and it is not the truth. So the reality is still we are there and this is the biggest.”
Guardiola added, “Today, the way we behaved in this typical winter game, at Selhurst Park always is difficult. The composure we played with, the few, few chances we conceded, the desire to win the game because we want to win the game, we want to be close to Arsenal – that is the best for my team.”
