Phil Foden on the road to recovery - Guardiola gives update on injury ahead of FA Cup tie with Arsenal

When asked about the game’s potential impact on the developing title race, Guardiola stated, “It’s the FA Cup. It’s a final. And of course, it’s more than Arsenal – it’s about proving ourselves – how is our level? When a team makes 50 points in one leg, it’s because they have been the best and they are. So we have to prove ourselves, how far away or how close we are and the best way to notice is perform our best level.”
