Pep Guardiola, believes Manchester City’s victory on Wednesday night against Arsenal has not decided the title and that their next three games will have a big say in who lifts the trophy.
City closed the gap to two points and hold two games in hand with a scintillating performance to which their rivals could provide no answer.
Kevin De Bruyne dazzled with two goals and an assist for John Stones’ header while Erling Haaland added a fourth after Rob Holding had pulled one back for the visitors, who Arteta could only admit were completely out-classed.

“I have a feeling the next three games will dictate a lot. Marco Silva has done amazing this season. We then have two games at home in West Ham and Leeds,” Pep Guardiola said.
“I don’t want to anticipate anything but at home this season we feel comfortable. The next three games will be really important but, of course, the most important thing is our destiny is in our hands.”
On their performance against Arsenal, Guardiola added: “Congratulations to all the players, backroom staff, an important game, not decisive, but really, really important. We played really good from the beginning to the end.

“They are top of the league, the reality is we’re two points behind. Of course, we have two games in hand but still they are there.
“Absolutely I prefer my position because now it’s in our hands. I would love that these two games are six points but you have to win them, but I prefer it because it depends on us.
“Until today, I prefer the position in the Premier League of Arsenal because if Arsenal had beaten us it’s in their hands. But now it is in our hands.”
