Recall that Man City were knocked out of the Carabao Cup last week by Newcastle before suffering a shock defeat to Wolves in the Premier League.
City on Wednesday, defeated RB Leipzig 3-1 in the UEFA Champions League, told TNT Sports in a chat that they are ready for Arsenal.
Asked about the importance of delivering such a strong performance ahead of facing Arsenal on Sunday at Emirates, Guardiola told TNT Sports: Yeah, but Im not going to judge my team on results.

Both games [against Newcastle and Wolves] were maybe not the best performance but it was not easy when 10 players defended in the box.
Ten players defending, five players, four players and a striker and a holding midfielder all in the box, it is not easy!
So it happened, we were unlucky with the first goal, we were not sharp enough, it happened. Its many games so I can understand it.
But despite that, if you think I am going to doubt about the players or doubt about what were going to do this season because today we could have lost again, then you are wrong. You are not the right person to ask these questions.
I rely on these guys unconditionally, winning or not winning, because I know the training sessions, the mentality that they have and they prove it.
And now we are going to Arsenal to do our game. Rest and hopefully we can arrive in March, April, May being there [in the title race], close to the competitions.
And I have a feeling we will not be an easy opponent to beat.
