The Manchester City boss led Manchester City to victory in a potential title-defining clash with Arsenal at Etihad.

Guardiola said Arsenal fans should not be disappointed by the 4-1 loss to Manchester City that dented the club’s chances on the Premier League title race.
He urged them to be happy having qualified for the Champions League football next season, which to him, is the biggest title for the club after seven years.
“Arsenal have already achieved Champions League qualification after seven years.
”Maybe the mood there is a bit down.
“After seven years they won the most important title of the season for the club – to qualify next season for the Champions League.
‘Because financially, it is prestigious, new signings.
”For many reasons it is the most important title, by far, and it is already there.
‘They lost the last game [against Man City] and they are sad, but I am pretty sure they have to be so happy because they make an incredible achievement,” Guardiola said.
Arsenal are currently two points ahead of Manchester City on the Premier League table but have played two games more.
Should Manchester City win West Ham today, they will reclaim the top spot with one match outstanding.
