Campbell claims 2004 Arsenal team would have never been afraid of Manchester City

Manchester City have been in a league of their own this season as they are just two wins away from being crowned English champions.

After a transitional first season, Pep Guardiola has transformed the North-West outfit into an unstoppable unit.

In fact, in 30 Premier League games, City have suffered just one defeat and that was in the form of a 4-3 loss to Liverpool at Anfield.

The club currently hold a 16-point advantage over the rest of the pack, and Arsenal reside a mammoth 33 points adrift of City.

At this stage, the Gunners are unlikely to claim a top-four place as they are 13 points off the pace with eight games left to play.

Sol Campbell, who spent just under six years at the club across two spells in his playing career, has suggested that the ‘Invincibles’ would not have been scared of the current City side.

The Arsenal team that Campbell is referring to is Arsene Wenger’s 2003-04 squad, who went the entire Premier League season unbeaten.

Planet Football quotes the retired defender as saying:

“Do I think our team from 2004 would have beaten them? We would not have been afraid of them, that’s for sure. I’ve seen too many teams looking scared of City this season. That is one reason why they have won the league so easily. They are playing the possession game, the Barcelona way, but I think more teams need to go toe-to-toe with them when the time is right, and we haven’t see that too often this season.”
