Managers Reaction

Arsenal coach Albert Stuivenberg said: “Very frustrated, of course, with the end result. But also very proud of the performance of the players. When you end the game playing with 10 players against this City team and don’t concede a lot of chances, the overall performance has been very good.”

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said: “They were better. We faced a team that in the past years struggled to be in the top four and they started the season being in the bottom. And now they’re in the four. They had six, seven days after their last game against Norwich… we had two days and a half and Brentford was so tough. And we didn’t have energy.”
