“That’s the level that this league demands from you – to reach between 90 and 100 points to be able to win the league. We’re fighting for titles and in this league a draw is almost like a loss, due to how high the bar is.

“So we have to win practically every game and that starts against Arsenal, who are currently the league leaders.”


Rodri described every upcoming match as a final, recognising the importance of consistency and determination in achieving success. With City’s unbeaten streak extending to an impressive 62 games, Rodri expressed confidence in the team’s ability to navigate through the challenges of competing on multiple fronts.

Drawing on their experience as reigning champions, Rodri stressed the importance of maintaining their winning mentality and adhering to their successful playing style. He called on his teammates to approach each game with confidence and humility, acknowledging the hard work required to secure victory.

“Every game until the end is going to be a final. We must win it and we must win it with our philosophy and our way that has been successful in the last years.

“This is the moment to give everything. We have to play with confidence, like we have in the last years, and be humble enough to run more than the opponent and do more than the opponent if we want to win. We can use the experience we have in the past to try to fight again.”
