Man City boss Guardiola defends Arteta: Arsenal were missing White, Partey

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has urged Arsenal to stand by Mikel Arteta after today's thumping.

City thrashed Arsenal 5-0 in Saturday's early kickoff.

On his former City assistant manager, Guardiola said: “Arteta knows how I love him.

"In the two or three years he was here he was important to what we built. People want results right away, with the players he had today, Ben White, Thomas Partey were missing, many players they invested in were missing, without that it is difficult.

"I know his awareness as a manager and as a leader, the moment everyone is back he will do an excellent job. I know this because I know him, I know the job he can do."
