Guardiola wants to stay at Man City beyond 2021

City looked like they were heading for a slender win after Kevin De Bruyne's stunning 82nd-minute strike, but Shelvey whipped home from 25 yards to seal a 2-2 draw for Steve Bruce's side.

"I don't know the thoughts of the Arsenal board", Guardiola said yesterday ahead of Manchester City's visit to Newcastle today.

Arsenal announced on Friday that it had sacked Emery after the Premier League club's worst run in more than a quarter of a century.

Despite this, Guardiola did concede that he was flattered that other clubs were courting the backroom staff that he has assembled at the Etihad Stadium, while also claiming that he hopes the team will remain together until the end of the campaign at least.

City still had one more chance to take all three points in stoppage time when De Bruyne picked out Sterling, but his shot lacked the power to beat Dubravka and with that opportunity may have gone their chances of a third title in a row.

No talks have yet been held with City chiefs, but Guardiola said: "I'm so comfortable working with this club".

The Premier League action keeps coming - make sure you don't miss a thing by signing up for goal alerts with the Sky Sports Score Centre app.

"In the last two games, it happens and will will try to adjust". It's not the same for a manager after five years as two - everyone is fresh after two. "We have to win games, win games, win games, and when you don't win, it will be more hard".

"For me myself, I want to see my players and the reaction of my players and everything", Guardiola added.

City went into their game at St James' Park already nine points behind table toppers Liverpool and knowing they couldn't afford to drop more points.

"It's tough with a new manager but they have good results".

"I know I can do that, I do it in training quite regularly but it is important to do it in a match and this secured us a point". We scored a goal and forgot to attack.

Liverpool have been handed a boost in the title race as reigning champions Manchester City could manage just a draw against Newcastle, despite taking the lead twice.
