Pep Guardiola branded Manchester City’s clash with Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium  in a little over a week as a ‘final’.

Manchester City would be in firm control of the Premier League title race with victory over Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.

“It is a final to play more finals because if you lose this game, it will be almost over,” Guardiola said. “Hopefully we can arrive having the chance to be there.

“It is win, win and win. They have done an incredible run and I don’t think they are going to drop many points so it is important to be in there.”
