This weekend's Premier League focus game, Arsenal will face Manchester City. Guardiola's team had a bad start to the new season, and their state was average. But Arteta believes that Manchester City's strength and performance are still top-notch, and he does not think Manchester City has fallen.
Arteta said: "Man City is still creating amazing numbers. I think they are just unlucky. Some games that should have ended early were not taken. The opponents only had half their chances, but they were more efficient and they were punished in the end. . But I have not seen any level of decline in Manchester City, in every respect."
Asked if he knows Guardiola’s tactics better than others, Arteta said: “I don’t know this. I know Guardiola very well because we have been working together for four years and have a very close relationship. We all know that. Our ideas and possible coping strategies. But in actual games, it is very difficult to stop them as much as possible, much more difficult than on the tactical board."
