Guardiola fans title talk after Arsenal draw

Guardiola fans title talk after Arsenal draw

But Arsenal fought back and Theo Walcott punished sloppy defending to level in the 40th minute. We have specific qualities in our players to create those chances but we were unable to score goals.

The draw represented a missed opportunity to pull further clear of fifth place but it could have been different had referee Andre Marriner pointed to the penalty spot in injury time when Nacho Monreal appeared to handle.

City have conceded 32 league goals this season - 11 more than second-placed Tottenham Hotspur, nine more than Chelsea - and the backline requires a significant overhaul this summer.

If City had played well here they would have continued to show confidence and that touch of football arrogance that Guardiola demands from his teams. I like when my teams play with the ball. "But he said to me in England in that kind of situation there's no whistles".

"They are so professional, (Arsenal manager) Arsene (Wenger) is professional and the Arsenal players as well".

Several Gunners link up with Premier League rivals on England duty and are often put out of sorts by stories told by Liverpool and Manchester City players. Of course, Guardiola said afterwards that the failure was his, that he needs to convince the players to play his way.

But Guardiola has praised Wenger and said he believes he can turn the club around, adding: "When he goes back to winning, the fans will be happy again I promise you - 100 percent". He has started to walk and hopefully he can come back to the pitches and start to run and make some exercises.

With both Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna coming to the end of their careers, Guardiola wants an energetic right-back to pace up and down the lines at the Etihad for years to come.

Jesus proved an immediate hit by notching three goals in his first five appearances in English football after finally completing his £27m ($33.8m) summer move from Palmeiras during the January transfer window.
