Wenger confronts Guardiola ahead of Arsenal's loss to City

Sparkling City close in on title by thrashing Arsenal again

Many Arsenal fans will have cried a few times this season.

Arsenal legend Lee Dixon has indicated the Gunners board could think again about moving Arsene Wenger on in the summer if he can deliver the Europa League.

"They were clinical like they were in the League Cup [final], they took advantage of every weakness we have shown defensively".

City finished third last season, 15 points behind Chelsea, but backed Guardiola by handing him more than £200m to spend in the summer and could be rewarded with as many as three trophies this term.

"When your confidence is not at the best, the first thing that goes is your fluidity in the movement, the spontaneous side of the game".

They face a quick and testing return to action as they host champions Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, but Sane feels the fixture itself should ensure there is no drop in intensity. "I'm always ready for a fight".

"I believe that (we need to) analyse well, focus on the next one and respond together in a united way, which is part of our philosophy at the club". I don't understand managers criticising other managers because we are all alone.

Arsenal remain unbeaten in 34 games against newly-promoted sides but Wenger admits the challenge of maintaining that record is getting harder.

"Yes, for sure because they have the possibility to spend money, to improve the quality of the starting XI, the quality of the squad", he said.

"We must have great admiration for this team because they are having a fantastic path in this season".

Struggling Arsenal are 10 points off the top four and a whopping 30 points adrift of the champions-elect.

"Are they watching the video of last night's game now or is it let's put that behind us?"

"I think the time has come now for the people above to say: "Enough is enough - it's time for someone else to come in", Sky Sports" analyst and former England and Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher added.

Antonio Conte is a "master" tactician and the Chelsea manager has already changed the way clubs play in the Premier League, according to the Italian's Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola.
