The Invincibles mastermind says Manchester City’s loss to Chelsea proves no one is unbeatable.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that Manchester City’s 0-1 home defeat to Chelsea proves there are no invincible teams in the Premier League.
The Frenchman should know as well, as Wenger is still the only boss to guide a team to an unbeaten league season since the re-branding of the division in 1992.
In the 2003/04 campaign the Gunners went the entire 38 games without losing a match and taking their third league title in the process – with the team famously being dubbed the ‘Invincibles.’
Yet Wenger says that currently no side can achieve that status.
“I told you they were not unbeatable one month ago and you did not believe me,” the 64-year-old was quoted by the London Evening Standard.
“There is no invincible team I think because there are so many quality teams in the Premier League and it is just how close you are to your best every time which decides the game.”
City’s defeat at home means that the title race is extremely close with just two points separating them and the Blues from Wenger’s men at the top of the table.
The north Londoners are about to enter an extremely crucial phase in their campaign, when they play Liverpool twice, Manchester United and Bayern Munich across three competitions in 11 days.
Many have said that this period could make or break the club’s season and Wenger will be looking to come out of the fixture list unscathed if possible.
