Arsenal and Manchester City will play the derby of the eighth round in the Premier League.

It will be a match between two teams that are main contenders for the title of champion in England.

Arsenal have won a duel with City away from home after managing to sign Declan Rice who was also wanted by Man City.

Pep Guardiola has admitted that they wanted the transfer of Rice at all costs and that they lost the race with Arsenal.

“Surely everyone knows City wanted him, we wanted him. He could play not only when Rodri couldn’t,” said Pep.

“In the end, Arsenal pushed him more and wanted him more, maybe Arteta was more convincing than me, or the club itself, or their offer. We could afford it maybe less, that’s why,” said Pep.

The reigning champion of England had offered 80 million pounds, but in the end the Gunners made an offer of 105 million pounds, transferring the English midfielder.
