Man City boss Pep Guardiola has named four teams in the English Premier League which he terms as ‘exceptional’ but omitted Arsenal.

Pep Guardiola’s side now sit in fourth position on the Premier League table after facing some tough sides of late.

However, the Spanish coach didn’t include Arsenal in his list despite losing 1-0 to the North London Club.

He said: “We played top, top, top teams.

“Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Aston Villa right now are exceptional teams.

“It is what it is. It’s not the first time we have been in this position. In every season, we have had periods where we do not get results.

“Do you know how much we struggled last season? We were eight or nine points behind Arsenal, with all the injuries we had.”
