Arsene Wenger has said Manchester City can match his “Invincibles” by going the entire Premier League season unbeaten, but added that Arsenal did it without the financial resources that are at Pep Guardiola’s reach.
“Why not? It can happen, but there is still a long way to go,” Wenger told a news conference on Friday. “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.”
“Look, we had no petrol but ideas, they have petrol and ideas, so that makes it more efficient,” Wenger said, when comparing this City side to his “Invincibles.”
Arsenal are 19 points behind Man City, languishing in seventh place after three league games without a win. That is despite Arsenal actually having created more chances overall than City in the league — but scoring just 30 goals to City’s 52.
“At the moment there is a difference between points we get and the domination we have in the game,” Wenger said. “I feel as well it’s in cycles… We want to continue what we do well and improve the finishing, be a bit sharper in our finishing. Overall, that’s what we want to be inspired with. When you speak about the problem, it has to look natural to finish. At the moment, maybe we are in a position where we want to force the situation a little bit too much.”
