Pep pinpoints Arsenal's advantage over City

Despite having one more game to play, Guardiola still contends that Arsenal have a slight advantage over the Citizens.

Speaking after his side's victory over Wolves, the Spaniard observed:

"We have to win at Fulham [next Saturday] at 12:30pm which is always difficult. And Spurs is always [difficult]," he said via Metro UK.
"Because goal difference is not possible. We cannot draw. The way they [Arsenal] are playing since the winter break, it is incredible, the consistency and quality they have," he added.

City are scheduled to face Fulham in their next fixture as Mikel Arteta's men battle rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Arsenal forward, Kai Havertz, taking to social media to express his joy following his side's comprehensive win against Bournemouth on Saturday, May 4.

Despite not finding the back of the net, the German played a key part in helping the Gunners secure the crucial win at the Emirates.

He will be hoping to continue with his impressive run of form against the Red Devils.
