Pep Guardiola reflects on Manchester City's defeat against Arsenal
Manchester City tasted defeat for the first time in the hands of Arsenal after 12 consecutive victories for the first time since 2015.

Arsenal won the game 1-0 with the only goal coming from Gabriel Martinelli who came off the bench to score the winning goal of the match.
"We started really well with two or three chances. They started the second half really well with the rhythm. Then it was tight and they got a deflection goal. They won, congratulations to them. We tried. We did it. From both sides there wasn’t a lot of chances. Both did good high pressing. It was tight. In the end, one action, we lost. Ten minutes was Arsenal on top and after, equal. We had our moments but in general, it was tight. Unfortunately, they did it."
