"We needed at least to come in level at half-time but City took advantage of our lack of confidence". "We were clinical. We scored three outstanding goals".

Pep Guardiola's side once again played some breathtaking attacking football, with German winger Leroy Sane putting in a stand out performance. Still, it's an unbelievable result for us.

Nottingham Forest sent them packing in the FA Cup and Manchester City recorded a comprehensive 3-0 victory in the EFL Cup final last weekend.

Arsenal face just one other top-six side, as they travel to Manchester United at the end of April.

They badly need a victory to restore belief and defeat at the Amex Stadium against a side promoted last season and now engaged in a fight to avoid an immediate return to the Championship would increase the level of dissent to new levels. We try our best in every game.

"We don't think too much", replied Pep Guardiola when the scenario was put to him.

MANCHESTER CITY play Chelsea at home on Sunday afternoon, but who will start?

Intensity the key for Newcastle at Liverpool, says Rafa Benitez
So, who will be picked? Huddersfield can go into the Tottenham game this weekend and if they lose it's no big deal. Liverpool recall Dejan Lovren and Jordan Henderson for their Premier League clash with Newcastle United .

"[I have] experience and desire to change things and to continue to help the team". We forget that we are exhausted. "At the end of the day, we lost against a top quality team".

"They are important, the fans, and at some point, you need to go away because the club is always more important than any person".

"If Ederson had not saved the penalty the game would have been completely open", Guardiola said.

City are on the verge of replacing Chelsea as Premier League champions having left the rest trailing in their wake and establishing a staggering 16-point lead with just 10 games to go. Second half we improved but the damage was done in the first half. But even though the save wasn't so crucial for the result, the Brazilian goalkeeper keeps showing his great attributes in his first Premier League year. "Arsenal were the only club who made an offer, a real offer, and I'm really happy, because it's a good club". "We want to win the league as fast as we can".

Wenger admitted, though, that it may be hard to rebuild his squad's confidence quickly.

"We must be focused", he said.

"Forget tonight, the only way you can turn this negative at Arsenal into a positive is if the board - together with the manager - comes out and announces that Wenger will move on in the summer", Carragher said during Sky Sports' coverage of Arsenal's defeat at the Emirates.
