The current Manchester City team is a good side, but not unstoppable, according to Arsene Wenger.
Speaking to BeIN Sports, Wenger claimed the difference between both sides in the 3 – 1 loss earlier this season wasn’t much. And the game could have gone a different way, had the referee gotten his decisions right.
“The referee had an absolutely atrocious input to the result of the game. “
“They are a good side but they are not an unstoppable side,” the Frenchman said.
“If you look at the expected goals, it was 0.7 for them and 0.6 for us, it was a very tight game.”
They created very little and very little shots on target just one more than us.”
“Overall we were hugely punished by the third goal because at 2-1 we would have been in the game. I don’t dispute that they are a good side, but they are not an unstoppable side.”
On the prospect of Manchester City going the season unbeaten, Wenger had a cheeky reply.
“People always want to predict what will happen in the game. I don’t know more than you, maybe, maybe not, but at the moment only one team has done it”.
In that regard, Wenger has a point.
