“The football they are playing and the consistency of the results leave me with little doubt: Manchester City are the best team in Europe at the moment. Obviously they have weaknesses, all teams know that, but it is not easy to find them because they are very strong defensively », said the London coach.
With Arsenal in 10th place, with 34 points, six from the qualifying zone for European competitions, Arteta assumed the decisive role of this game.
