"A combination of their quality and the fact that they are high on confidence and we are low in confidence played a big part in the game tonight". If they lose that as well it really tests the club.
The Gunners are now sixth in the league, eight points behind fifth-placed Chelsea.
Arsene Wenger has warned his Arsenal players everyone's future at the club is a stake. The Swedish striker, who scored 28 goals last season, has not played since Boxing Day after suffering a knee injury just weeks after returning from a injury layoff.
"I think the time has come now for the people above to say: "Enough is enough - it's time for someone else to come in", Sky Sports" analyst and former England and Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher added.
Chelsea are seeking to avoid three successive away Premier League defeats for the first time in five years, but with their title hopes long since over.
Guardiola's side have dominated in the current campaign and are 16 points ahead of second-placed Manchester United and 22 points ahead of defending champions Chelsea as they close in on their third league title in seven years.
It's true that Manchester City were already winning Arsenal 3-0 when Ederson saved Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's penalty at the Emirates Stadium last night. Tactically he is a master, he did it fantastic with the national team with Italy and I think Conte is going to give something for English football, I'm pretty sure of that.
With Arsenal likely to make changes for tomorrow's game at Brighton, Wenger said: "I am always ready for a fight". That's the problem. I felt sorry for him last Sunday, as he put a team out there who acted as if they wouldn't be getting the blame.
"They took advantage of our lack of confidence", said Wenger. "It is down to how you respond and the focus and effort you show to turn things around".
