Just in: Pep Guardiola praises Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal and backs them to fight for the title in the near future

Pep Guardiola has backed Mikel Arteta to turn Arsenal into ‘real contenders’ for the Premier League title in the near future.

Arteta spent three years at Manchester City as Guardiola’s assistant, helping them win back-to-back top-flight titles and become a dominant force in the English game.

Since taking up his first managerial post at the Emirates, Arteta has already secured silverware with his side’s FA Cup triumph last year, but it is in the league where they have struggled.

Arteta’s side are down in 10th in the table but have improved in recent months.

The Spaniard led the Gunners to an eighth-placed finish last season, and heading into their meeting against league leaders City on Sunday, they find themselves down in 10th place in the current standings.

Arsenal began to turn things around in the winter period after a miserable start to the season, and Guardiola feels their performances in recent months are a more accurate representation of their quality.

Arteta and Pep held wonderful memories at City, the won too many trophies together

The City boss also believes the Gunners have an abundance of attacking quality and thus and tipped Arteta to make his side strong contenders for titles in the ‘early future’.

‘All I can say is the last months show me that all managers need time and he is not an exception,’ Guardiola said on Friday. ‘What I see in the last two months every game Arsenal played is better than the opponent. ‘Tomorrow we will have an incredible performance. They have an exceptional build-up, they move with many, many sense, all the movements they have for the build-up to the final third. ‘The quality for incredible energy, for Smith [Rowe], [Bukayo] Saka and [Pierre] Aubameyang, especially with his runs in behind, and all the players that they have in the middle. ‘In the early future they will be real contenders to fight for the titles.’ 

Despite being his mentor for three years, Guardiola doesn’t feel he inspired Arteta and neglected to take any credit for his coaching capabilities.

‘I did not inspire him, what he knows he knows for himself,’ Guardiola added. ‘I am not any influence. What he is doing, all credit to him and his backroom staff.’

Just In: New pictures of Arsenal’s 2021/22 away kit leaked

Published

on

The first pictures of Arsenal’s first team squad sporting next season’s away kit have been leaked.

After this season’s, bloodshot eyes shirt, the club are returning to a more traditional yellow and blue combination for 2021/22.

The shade of yellow – ‘pearl citrine’ in adidas parlance – may look a little like custard but the use of the stripped-back cannon badge is a nice touch.

We expect to see similar shots of the home and third kits in due course. The latter is predicted to be blue with a lightning motif inspired by the kits of the mid-nineties.
