Arteta, captained during his playing career, served as assistant to Guardiola at City from 2016 to 2019 before Arsenal appointed him as manager.

’s currently sit top of the league standings with 50 points after 19 games, five points above second-placed City have played a game more.

The teams will face off at the Etihad Stadium in Friday’s fourth-round FA Cup clash.

“What I see in belongs to Mikel and his people,” said Guardiola. “I would like to say ‘Yeah, what they do is because I teach him’. Bullsh*t. I am 52 years old. I’ve been in Arsenal for one day, when they allowed us to train to win the Champions League against [Manchester] United [in 2011]. That’s the only time I’ve been in the Arsenal training centre. Sorry United,” he told reporters before the match.

“They play with wingers higher than the midfielders like us – yeah. But all the methodology, the process, with the character, the mentality, the set pieces, a thousand million things – that belongs to them,” he added.
