‘I don’t care’ – Pep Guardiola makes title claim as Liverpool faces Man City and Arsenal fight

With victories this weekend from all three of the leading candidates for the Premier League title, the season is sure to come to an exciting conclusion. Following Liverpool’s weekend loss to Arsenal, the Reds were unable to surge eight points ahead, and as a result, the top three are now separated by just two points.


After Liverpool defeated Burnley 3-1 at Anfield on Saturday, Manchester City briefly took the lead after defeating Everton in the early kickoff. However, Arsenal delivered the weekend’s best performance, defeating West Ham 6-1 at the London Stadium.


Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne’s return to fitness has helped City become the clear favourite to win the championship again this year. Haaland scored two goals against Everton, the second of which was assisted by teammate De Bruyne.


Pep Guardiola, though, is adamant that the two won’t guarantee that City will easily win the championship and thinks Liverpool and Arsenal will still have hopes of winning the regular season. When asked if the return of Haaland and De Bruyne scared City’s competitors, Guardiola said, “I don’t care.” How frightening it is for them is irrelevant to me. since I am aware that some of my coworkers are completely fearless.


“Well, with [De Bruyne and Haaland], we are stronger, but we are still capable of playing well. However, you can win games with the help of these players. Erling is the greatest in the box because the first goal is so difficult—right foot, first contact.”


On March 10, Liverpool and City are scheduled to play again at Anfield. This match could be pivotal in the fight for the championship. The Premier League winner still needs to visit the Etihad Stadium to play Arsenal.


After a difficult match against Burnley on Saturday, Liverpool tied the score at halftime before Luis Díaz and Darwin Núñez goals sealed a crucial three points. Following that, Klopp mentioned that Tottenham and Aston Villa were also considered, despite the fact that Unai Emery’s team had lost to Manchester United on Sunday.


“It’s not just the three points [against Burnley],” he continued. It is impossible to always have momentum guaranteed. We played brilliantly against Chelsea nine days ago, yet we were defeated by Arsenal. Every time is a new challenge. If it doesn’t click right away, persevere through it. The boys persevered and managed to score three points despite the extreme difficulty.
