Guardiola knows things people. And he knows why Arsenal lost to Dinamo Zagreb, he has warned his side that it was no fluke.
Guardiola’s men take on Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday in the champions league group stages, after Zagreb shocked the Gunners two weeks ago.
Though Guardiola believes his side is improving, he is aware of the challenge that awaits them at the Allianz Arena.
“Every day and every week is important. The most important thing now is Dinamo Zagreb,” he said.
“You’d normally think Arsenal would win in Zagreb, but then you watch the game and you see straight away why Dinamo won. They are very organised, very aggressive.
“They have very technical players and we need to approach the game with great seriousness.
“They played well in defence, with their players showing discipline by maintaining their shape. Forty-five games without losing… this must be a really strong squad – it won’t be easy.
“It’s a great opportunity to bring us into a good position for the game against Arsenal. You have to win your home games to get ahead.
“I have a lot of confidence in my team. Our development is good, we’re getting a little better every game.”
