Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has given his opinion on an Arsenal title challenge.
The Gunners are top of the Premier League by five points after 14 matches.
With the league season not resuming until December 26th, players and managers who are not going to the World Cup have a lot of time to think about how the rest of the season will unfold.
“People go to their national team, they will be focused, it is a dream for them, it’s a World Cup,” said Guardiola.
“We have time to reflect, the staff, what we are doing good, what we could do better and, after, the Carabao Cup and Leeds, the first (league) game. And we will see how people come back.
“People say many things, the Premier League is difficult, we are going to try to come back good and fight for that.”
