Arsene Wenger has explained the difference between his Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ and the current Manchester City side.
City lead the Premier League table by 11 points, having won 16 and drawn one of their 17 games so far.
Many have questioned whether they could go the whole season unbeaten, in turn emulating the Arsenal side of 2003/04.
Wenger guided the Gunners to 26 wins and 12 draws as they sauntered to the Premier League title that campaign, but the Frenchman has pointed out one major difference between the two sides.
“Look, we had no petrol but ideas, they have petrol and ideas, so that makes it more efficient,” he said when asked of the similarities.
“So, everybody expects and projects that they will last. Why not? It can happen, but there is still a long way to go.
“At the moment I think everything goes for them inside the games, but maybe as well they have the quality to turn it in their favour.”
