Arsenal title winner Dixon: Is Man City boss Guardiola really so good?

Arsenal title winner Lee Dixon is unconvinced by the work of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

Dixon has questioned how Pep Guardiola would fare if he had to manage lesser players after City moved 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

After City's defeat of Everton, he said: "He's asking really intelligent, talented footballers to do jobs and he is a forward-thinking coach - but it would be interesting to see what he would do with the lesser players - whether he'd be able to manage them and put them in formations like playing a left-back in the middle of midfield.

"Interesting."

City have now won 17 successive matches in all competitions, a new English record, and are still fighting in all four competitions having qualified for the final and quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup and FA Cup respectively.
