Manchester City are setting the Premier League on fire this season as they are yet to lose a single game in the league. Guardiola’s men have picked up 43 points out of the available 45 and are sitting pretty at the top of the table – eight points ahead of local rivals Manchester United.
And the kind of form they are in many are comparing them to that famous Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ team. Everyone except one person.
Former Manchester United player Paul Ince feels that City are being overhyped and they will not be able to last the full distance.
“How can you call a team the greatest ever, when they’ve won jack sh*t?” he told Paddy Power.
“I’m sick of seeing people suggest this team are better than Manchester United’s ’99 team, not to mention their ’92/93 or ’94/95 sides.
“Then there’s also the Arsenal Invincibles team. City’s team do not come close to any of those.
“If you’re talking to me four years down the line, and Pep’s City have won the league and the Champions League, then maybe.
“But now, when they’ve not won nothing? No. I’m just not having it.”
The Manchester Derby is scheduled to be held on Sunday and this match might very well decide if Manchester United will have any chance of staying in the title hunt or will their ‘noisy neighbours’ run away with the trophy?
