Pep Guardiola stated that Manchester City has higher expectations than Man United or Arsenal in his most recent press conference.
Manchester City has dominated the Premier League for the past decade but they now find themselves five points off league leaders Arsenal.
The Gunners have completely come out of left field with many at the start of the season predicting Man City to easily win their third title in a row.

In his interview after the 1-0 win over Chelsea, Guardiola admitted that the high expectations of his side are hindering their performance. The Spanish manager then went on to state that Arsenal and Manchester United have an advantage because their bar isn’t as high.
“The advantage of Arsenal and Manchester United right now is nobody has to win the Premier League for 20 points ahead in November like Man City has to – and this is sometimes a big problem,” Guardiola said.
“People say, ‘Ah, yes, but you are City!’ But with Arsenal winning all their games and you are eight points behind, it can happen [Manchester City not winning the title].”
Guardiola then went on to put pressure on Arsenal, stating that he expects them to reach 100 points this year.
“We have to reduce the gap by playing good and winning games. They could do more than 100 points if they keep this average and then we will not catch them. So we have to be almost perfect and hope they drop. They were excellent [against Newcastle],” Guardiola concluded.
