Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has made a worrying admission about Arsenal as the Premier League title race hots up.

The Citizens and Mikel Arteta's men are the leading contenders for the crown in what has turned out to be a two-horse race.

Only one point is separating the two Premier League giants as the season enters its homestretch.

The Gunners are currently leading the log with 80 points after 35 games, a point ahead of second-placed City, who still have a game in hand.

Both sides will be in action on Saturday, with Arsenal scheduled to play Bournemouth, as Guardiaola's charges battle Wolves at the Etihad Stadium.

Pep appears to concede the title to Arsenal

Despite City's slight advantage over Arsenal, Guardiola has appeared to concede the title to the north Londoners.

Speaking ahead of City's clash against Wolves, the Spaniard admitted it will be difficult to pip Arsenal to the title as they are currently very strong and consistent.

"I would love (that), but I don't know, I don't have an answer to this question. I would love to think 'yes' but we have to prove it tomorrow against Wolves and in the next games," Pep said via Sportskeeda.
"We know that we have to win all 12 points, otherwise it will be difficult because Arsenal are so strong, so consistent and it's difficult to see them dropping points," he added.

Areta clarifies Gabriel Jesus's future at Arsenal

In other news, Sports Brief also reported on Arteta setting the record straight about the future of Gabriel Jesus at Arsenal.

The Brazilian striker, who joined the Gunners from Man City in the summer of 2022, has managed just four Premier League goals in 24 appearances this season, sparking speculation he could be shipped out.

It was recently reported that Arsenal would consider offers for the Brazil international.
