Why not? It can happen, but there is still a long way to go.
Arsene Wenger has said that the title is not City's to lose yet while refusing to give up on his side's hope despite a goalless draw at West Ham United that left Arsenal 19 points adrift of leaders Manchester City.
"That's good to make headlines, but we have to focus on the next game", the Arsenal manager said. They have quality to turn it in their favour.
"They have resources. Money and quality is what I wanted to say, and in their management and players they have everything that is needed to be successful".
They are now on a 15 game winning streak, with the only team able to take points off them this season was Everton, who achieved a very respectable 1-1 draw at the Etihad stadium back in August.
Only once in Premier League history have Arsenal claimed fewer than nine points from their first nine away games of a season. Wenger was confident his side would not finish the season in seventh.
"I think the best way is to continue to put that behind us and focus on the quality of our game".
While City have swept aside all before them this season - losing just one dead rubber in the final round of group stage fixtures in the Champions League - Guardiola has endeavoured to curb expectations.
"We are so happy and will try to fight and maintain it as long as possible, but that is an exception".
Having drawn 1-1 at Southampton on Sunday, Wenger conceded that Arsenal lacked sharpness against a side that played one day earlier at Saturday lunchtime - a 1-0 win over Chelsea. "At the moment, maybe we are in a position where we want to force the situation a little bit too much". We had good opportunities but they blocked our shots.
But he also stressed that Guardiola is managing a City side at a time when they can pick and choose any player that money can buy.
Asked what he meant by "petrol", the Arsenal boss added: "They have resources".
"I will analyse every case individually and separately, but overall I would say my wish and my desire is that everybody stays".
