Advantage of five points is nothing — Guardiola

Advantage of five points is nothing — Guardiola

Pep Guardiola hails Fernandinho's work for Man City, calling him one of the three best holding midfielders in the world. They have only dropped 2 points out of 10 League games in this campaign when they drew at home to Everton back in August. It promised entertainment and that's exactly what we got. Celtic a long time ago.

Last season, November, December and January yielded just 20 points from 12 games at an average of 1.66 points per match, a sharp decline that saw City drop from first to fifth in the table.

"Manchester City had a massive transitional season but I think they are now powers again".

Sitting at the base of City's midfield, Fernandinho's superb form this term has been vital to implementing the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss' desired style of building from the back and allowing the creative talents of Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva to wreak havoc. I think that is the first real good step.

"We are already there and so are Tottenham". United are nearly there. "Beat Arsenal and after that we will see". John Stones has been outstanding - arguably been City's best player during this run - and is blossoming into a superb modern-day defender: calm in possession, capable of starting attacks and a brilliant reader of the game.

Meanwhile, Guardiola said Arsenal should not be ruled out as title rivals with the Gunners having the opportunity to cut their gap on City to six points with a win at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City take on Arsenal in the Premier League's blockbuster fixture this weekend.

He added: "No, I don't believe in that".

"You know my opinion on the players I have". It's part of the mentality he needs. Now he's more focused on that. "But we showed we are getting closer to these top teams".

Wenger played a weakened side against Red Star Belgrade, admittedly, but he will have expected his team to find a way through in 90 minutes. Our confidence is good.

It took Brook 493 games to reach his tally of 177.

"Fortunately, I am a lucky guy and I have a club where they give me time to do that, so I don't have the feeling that they don't trust me and that is fascinating". But no-one can tell me for sure.

The Brazilian said: "We are all very happy for him".

And alongside him, Nicolas Otamendi has also excelled, a grittier, backs-to-the-wall centre-back who complements Stones' aesthetics wonderfully.

"Chelsea are the champions".

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer?

So, can Guardiola ensure that City avoid a third consecutive winter of discontent?
