Pep Guardiola names one player who stopped Arsenal from being 'Premier League champions'

Speaking after Tuesday night's game against Tottenham, Pep Guardiola said: "Stefan Ortega defined, I would say, how the team is a team. Ortega saved us, otherwise Arsenal are Premier League champions.

"Do you know how many times Son Heung-min punished us in the years? I said 'No, not again.' But Stefan made an incredible save. He has this talent. In one-on-ones, he is one of the best goalkeepers I've ever seen.

"It's the German culture, stand up, don't go down, it’' really, really good. He's played in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, Ederson has four times setback for injuries. The club made an incredible decision to bring him here."

An injury to first-choice goalkeeper Ederson forced Guardiola to bring on Ortega in the 69th minute of the game against Tottenham on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old made a vital save to deny Son in a one-on-one minutes before the final whistle to keep the score 1–0, crushing Arsenal's hopes.
