Pep Guardiola has sent a message to Manchester City fans ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League game against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.
Arsenal are five points ahead of Manchester City but have played two games more than Manchester City.
“Wednesday is a final against a team that has been the best team in England so far and is five points ahead of us,” Guardiola told reporters.
“I know even though they have drawn the last three games, the way they play in big, big parts of the game, it is difficult to stop … It’s a massive, important game for us. We know winning will give us a step to putting it completely in our hands.
“The Premier League is 11 months working, working, working. And we want to take this opportunity. We cannot do it alone. Hopefully all the Etihad will be full three hours before the game.”
