Robert Pires believes Invincibles are still the pinnacle of English football…


Arsenal legend Robert Pires believes that The Invincibles squad is still the greatest team the Premier League has ever seen and would back them to beat Pep Guardiola’s current Manchester City side.

Fresh from breaking our consecutive league wins record of 2002, many are now tipping them to seriously threaten the unbeaten record which immortalised that 2003/04 championship winning team.

While Guardiola has sought to quell such comments, Arsene Wenger may be starting to feel the heat after he took a stab at Man City’s journey to their current status.

Wenger told reporters that he went a season unbeaten with “just ideas”, while Man City have “ideas and petrol”, alluding to their financial power and the source of those resources.

However, regardless of the semantics, Pires still feels his legendary side is pound-for-pound the better team.

“I think my team had more quality,” Pires told CNN.

“Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry had more quality than Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.

“Patrick Vieira is better than Fernandinho. Pires is better than … De Bruyne! And that’s why Arsenal are better than Man City.”

This argument seems irrelevant given that Manchester City – even though they’re favourites – are yet to even clinch the title, let alone go the entire season unbeaten.

Also, some might even make the comparison irrespective of how many games Pep’s side lose this season.

It will go down as one of the fiercest debates in Premier League commentary.
