Guardiola admits Liverpool are Premier League title favourites after Arsenal draw

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admits Liverpool is ‘the favourites’ to win the Premier League after a goalless draw against Arsenal.

Arsenal held reigning champions Manchester City to a 0-0 draw on Sunday at the Etihad Stadium. Man City are now three points behind Liverpool and one point behind Arsenal after 29 matches.

After the game, Guardiola admitted Liverpool now is “clear favourites” to win the league.

Always who is first is favourite,” Guardiola said.

The second favourite is Arsenal and we are third…It’s not in our hands. All we can do is think of Aston Villa (at home on Wednesday). Always when we were top of the league, we were favourites. It was in our hands. Now it’s not. It’s simple.

When asked how they can open up Arsenal’s defense after failing to score against them this season, Guardiola joked: “Kill someone”.

I recognise my team, the proposals and how we pressed high,” he said. “We’ve played against a low block sometimes and Arsenal are exceptional. Well managed and the players are really good.

You have to knock on the door of another manager and see if he can do it. As a team we’re still there. We could have more in some aspects but I’m satisfied. I told the team don’t be sad. You give credit to Arsenal for the things they do.”
