Pep Guardiola thinks that there will be plenty of twists and turns as the Premier League title race hots up.
Arsenal currently sit two points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, with Manchester United a further six points behind, though City have played a game more than the other two.
Arsenal are chasing a first league title since 2003/04, while another title for City would be a third on the bounce.
Midweek attentions turn to the FA Cup where City take on Bristol City on Tuesday evening, and with just over a third of the league fixtures remaining, Pep Guardiola predicted that ‘many things will happen’ and ‘teams will drop points’ during the run-in.
“We are in three competitions,” Guardiola said at his pre-match press conference.
“Tomorrow [in the FA Cup] and in the Champions League you have no chance when you lose. In the Premier League, we are close and the last ten games will define the season.
“I have the feeling in the Premier League many things will happen – teams will drop points. But we can’t drop many if we want to be there!”
Manchester City got back to winning ways at the weekend with a 4-1 win over Bournemouth after being held to back-to-back draws against Nottingham Forest and RB Leipzig.
“After Nottingham Forest, we were not consistent, now we are because we won one game,” he said.
“The way we are playing is good, results could be better. Sometimes it happens in football. Results are not exceptional but it’s okay.
“I have no complaints about how we are playing and how we are fighting. The mood in the locker room is exceptional and the guys are doing everything – that is enough for me.”
