The Arsenal players are confident and fired up to beat Man city

25 February 2018

Perhaps with this in mind, Guardiola will not endorse any wild celebrations if his team triumph, with a Premier League rematch at Arsenal on Thursday to consider.

Arsenal hasn't had the best of campaigns as it trails leader Manchester City by 27 points and finds itself sitting in the sixth spot on the Premier League table.

Arsenal full back Hector Bellerin has told the world that he is hoping to lift the League Cup this afternoon, and they want to do it for manager Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal, who's last League Cup title came in 1993, took down Guardiola's side en route to the FA Cup title last season and are certainly capable or orchestrating a similar upset.

The Carabao Cup Final kicks off Sunday afternoon at Wembley Stadium.

The dream of a quadruple might be over for Manchester City, but they now have a chance to prove their fortitude by winning the first trophy in a potential treble.

This was the first English Premier League meeting between Wenger and Guardiola.

"Without Claudio we would not have been in the semi-final". Even the dependable Petr Cech has had a below par season at Arsenal.

When the two teams met in the league in November, City ran away with a comfortable 3-1 victory, and after this cup final, they will cross swords once again, in the league, on Friday.

It uses a Snapdragon 450 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage (a microSD card slot accommodates). All of which is to say, the kinds of specs you'd anticipate when venturing to spend less than $100 of a phone.

"It happens that I'm still here, but overall there is only one desire, and that's to do as well as I can for the team".

Guardiola spoke after Sane picked up an injury in the challenge from Bennett in an FA Cup tie last month and called for players to be better protected. It could be the win that gives Arsenal the momentum to finish the season strongly.

Kevin de Bruyne volleyed into the side-netting before halftime but Arsenal barely conjured a chance apart from early on when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang somehow failed to beat Bravo from close range after Mesut Ozil's ball in.

It might instil a bit of belief in the fans as well. Although both have passed fitness tests, neither may be able to play big parts in the Carabao Cup Final.

"We are maybe underdogs but we have to believe in our quality".

"The fact that we won the first leg 3-0, the fact that we have another big game on Sunday, the fact that people subconsciously think they just have to turn up to win the game".

There's no doubting it, the final is a lot more important to Arsenal then it is to CIty.

His other test is one of loyalty: are League Cup regulars such as Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva benched to make the side stronger? However, for Arsenal, it could be the matter of Arsène Wenger staying or leaving at the end of the season.
