By Chimezie Nebolisa

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is convinced rivals,Arsenal deserve to be top in the Premier League.

City are eight points behind leaders Arsenal ahead of Thursday night’s clash with Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium.

After successive defeats to Southampton and Manchester United, Guardiola says the most important thing is to get back winning, starting with Spurs.

In a press conference, Guardiola said: “Pressure is the next game. We are not able to think about big expectations apart from winning the next game. If [Arsenal] are eight points in front it’s because they deserve to be there. They have been better than us so far but there are still many games to play – it’s how we come back. Always when we are behind I say don’t think about. We caught up with Liverpool in last years. Just think about the next game and after we see what happens. We have been in this position many times in the past. It’s not the first time we are there.”
