Guardiola said: “Mikel [Arteta] knows everything. He’s so good. It’s not because he’s my friend. I know how he lives, I know what he plans, I know how he works. He’s so clever.

“I learn a lot from watching his teams and today I learned something that I can use in the future. He knows everything about football.”
